Gardner Announces FAA Grants for Colorado Airports

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) announced the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) awarded four separate Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grants to Colorado airports. Yampa Valley Airport will receive $965,358 to acquire snow removal equipment and install a new airport beacon, the San Luis Valley Regional/Bergman Field Airport will receive $77,425 for runway rehabilitation, Colorado Plains Regional Airport will receive $233,060 to develop an airport master plan, and the Craig-Moffat Airport will receive $153,941 for taxiway rehabilitation.

“I’m pleased to announce four separate counties in Colorado will receive Federal Aviation Administration grants to improve airports from the Western Slope to the Eastern Plains,” said Gardner. “It is important our local airports have adequate resources to serve Coloradans across the state and all of those who utilize them. I will continue to champion Colorado priorities at the federal level and advocate on behalf of small towns across our great state.”
