Gardner Announces $3.3 Million Grant for Grand Junction Airport

Sterling, Wray, Holyoke Also Receive Grant Money

Washington, DCSenator Cory Gardner (R-CO) announced today that Grand Junction Regional Airport, along with several other Colorado airports, will receive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grants.

Grand Junction Regional Airport will receive $3,300,000 to rehabilitate the East Terminal Apron; Sterling airport will receive $118,755; Wray Municipal Airport will receive $237,510 for airport improvements; and Holyoke Airport will receive $342,430 for taxiway construction.

“I’m pleased Grand Junction, along with several airports across the Eastern Plains, will receive FAA grants,” said Gardner. “Grand Junction will use the $3.3 million to finish the East Terminal Apron rehabilitation project, which will benefit all Coloradans who utilize this transportation hub on the Western Slope. Several airports across the Eastern Plains will also benefit from grants that will allow them to continue to best serve Colorado’s rural communities. I will remain a champion for Colorado at the federal level and ensure local communities throughout the Centennial state receive the resources they need.”
