The St. Clair County Airport will receive $369,233 in funding from a federal grant, announced U.S. Senator Richard Shelby. The money will be used for rehabilitating runway lighting and taxiway lighting.
The Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration recently awarded a total of $1,394,902 to local and regional airports in Alabama for necessary improvements.
“A strong transportation infrastructure is critical to attracting new businesses and industries,” said Shelby on March 10. “These important grants will help the airports in the region make necessary improvements for their safe and trustworthy operation. Such improvements are essential to ensuring that these airports remain efficient transportation hubs for those traveling to, from, and through Alabama.”
