Duluth International Airport to receive nearly $1.5 million for improvement projects
Wednesday, May 20, 2020
The Federal Aviation Administration will award nearly $1.5 million to the Duluth International Airport in airport safety and infrastructure grants.
The funding comes from the FAA's airport improvement program. The Duluth International Airport will use the money toward acquiring snow removal equipment, sealing taxiway pavement surface and pavement joints as well as expanding the airport's apron, which is the area where airplanes are parked for refueling and maintenance services.
The projects have been planned for some time, Tom Werner, said executive director of the Duluth Airport Authority, adding that the grant money will help the airport infuse activity into the economy with construction jobs.
