HARKIN ANNOUNCES BOOST FOR IOWA AIRPORTS
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced nearly
$620,000 in federal grants for improvements to four Iowa airports.
These grants, released by the Department of Transportation, allow for
important structural and safety upgrades at facilities statewide.
Harkin is a member of the panel which funds transportation initiatives.
“I am pleased that Iowa airports will receive these essential
investments, many for important infrastructure improvements,” said
Harkin. “Maintaining a quality airport is important to the economic
health of a community, as many businesses look for a nearby airport
when deciding to come into a community or expand existing facilities.”
The grant awards are as follows:
Boone Municipal Airport: $150,000 to rehabilitate a runway
Creston: $171,000 to rehabilitate a taxiway
Decorah: $252,700 to construct a taxiway and rehabilitate runway lighting
Sheldon: $45,840 to construct a terminal building
