U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao announced last week that the Department of Transportation will award $477 million in airport infrastructure grants.

The money will be dispersed to 264 airports in 44 states, the Pacific Islands and the District of Columbia. This is the third allotment of the total $3.18 billion in Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program funding.

“Infrastructure projects funded by these grants will advance safety, improve travel, generate jobs and provide other economic benefits for local communities,” said Chao.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao announced last week that the Department of Transportation will award $477 million in airport infrastructure grants. O’Hare International Airport (pictured) is receiving $65 million for runway construction.

Selected projects include: runway reconstruction and rehabilitation; construction of firefighting facilities; and the maintenance of taxiways, aprons and terminals.

According to the DOT, airports can receive a certain amount of AIP entitlement funding each year based on activity levels and project needs. If capital project needs exceed available entitlement funds, the FAA can supplement an airport's entitlements with discretionary funding.

Some of the grant awards include:

  • Des Moines International Airport will receive $4.77 million to reconstruct an apron and taxiway;
  • Chicago/Rockford International Airport will receive almost $11.3 million to rehabilitate a runway and taxiway;
  • MBS International, in Saginaw, Michigan, will receive almost $4.65 million to construct a taxiway;
  • Minneapolis-St. Paul International/Wold-Chamberlain will receive over $9.7 million to construct a taxiway, improve the runway safety area, install taxiway lighting and install runway incursion marking;
  • Tweed-New Haven Airport, in Connecticut, will receive over $2.7 million for noise mitigation measure for residences;
  • Portsmouth International, at Pease in New Hampshire, will receive almost $13.5 million to reconstruct a runway;
  • Missoula International will receive over $9.2 million to construct a terminal building;
  • Pullman/Moscow Regional Airport, in Washington State, will receive almost $27.5 million to construct a runway, acquire an emergency generator and acquire snow removal equipment; and
  • San Diego International Airport will receive over $4.48 million for noise mitigation measures for residences.
