U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, said:

We saw a record number of passengers fly during the recent holiday season, and we can expect increased demand for air travel to continue.

These investments from the Biden-Harris administration are making it possible to modernize our country's aging airport infrastructure to meet this demand today and ensure safe, efficient travel into the future.

Among the grants awarded, projects will be set in motion to reconfigure taxiways to provide a simpler layout to avoid confusion, install new lighting systems and provide further flexibility on airfields.

Planned projects include the construction of an 8.617-foot parallel Taxiway at Willow Run Airport in Van Buren Township, Michigan costing 2.2 million USD, the rehabilitation of existing on-ground roadways for ground vehicles at Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, Wisconsin costing 2 million USD, and an 18 million USD expansion to the existing terminal at Sitka Rocky Gutierrez in Alaska, allowing for an additional 16,000 square feet to provide comprehensive space for passengers.

A full list of all grants to be awarded is available on the FAA website.
