McMorris Rodgers Announces $15 Million DOT Grant for the Pullman-Moscow Airport

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 18, 2017) – Today, Rep. McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) announced the approval of a $15 million grant from the Department of Transportation (DOT) for 2017 construction and reimbursement for the Instrument Landing System (ILS) at the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport. Rep. McMorris Rodgers released the following statement after the announcement:

“The Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport Runway Realignment Project will play an important role in modernizing Eastern Washington’s infrastructure. It will help connect those in our community with the rest of the world and encourage economic growth in the region. This grant is a huge win for everyone on the Palouse and I look forward to seeing this project finished so the airport can continue to benefit our community for decades to come.”

Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao said of the grant, “These grants will help to ensure our aviation infrastructure has the continued ability to move the traveling public and the shipment of goods safely and efficiently. Air transportation is a vital mode of transportation connecting the traveling public to family, business, and global opportunities.”

In March, the airport received an announcement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that they would be approved for a traditional ILS, and part of the $15 million grant announced today will assist funding for the ILS. You can find more information on the grant here.
