U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-WV, Thursday announced $3.1 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for three West Virginia airport projects.
The funding is through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and will be used to support construction of new terminal buildings at North Central West Virginia Airport ($2,053,888) and Jackson County Airport ($159,000).
West Virginia International Yeager Airport was awarded $964,648 for the purchase of equipment to maintain safe runway operations.
“West Virginia’s airports are our gateway to the rest of the world, and these investments will boost local tourism and spur economic development across the entire state,” Manchin said.
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act has provided $15 billion for airport-related projects across the country.
The funding can be invested in runways, taxiways, safety and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport-transit connections and roadway projects.
