WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 5, 2018) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) announced more than $11 million in funding from the Department of Transportation for the Spokane International ($8 million) and Pullman Regional ($3.2 million) Airports to assist with runway installation and upgrade costs.
“I was proud to support the legislation that authorizes this grant funding to help continue to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure,” said McMorris Rodgers. “Eastern Washington airports help connect our region to the rest of the world, providing economic benefit and global access to our communities. Thank you to the Trump administration for their continued commitment to rebuilding our infrastructure so it can serve Eastern Washington and our country into the next generation.”
NOTE: The Spokane International Airport will receive more than $8 million to assist with runway guidance signage and installation of the Runway Vertical/Visual Guidance System. The Pullman Regional Airports announced grant funding of $3.2 million will go towards their continued runway realignment project, specifically to fund the Instrument Landing System (ILS) installation.
This latest round of funding marks more than $40 million in grant funding that the Congresswoman has helped secure for Eastern Washington’s airports in the last year and a half. Learn more about that other funding here, here, and here.
