WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Tina Smith (D-MN) announced that the that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will award $21,300,000 from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The airport will use the money to improve passenger boarding bridges, rehabilitate roofs, and increase energy efficiency.
“Investments in our airports serve as a down payment on the long-term economic well-being of our state,” said Klobuchar. “This funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will improve the travel experience and energy efficiency of the Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport while also creating good paying jobs.”
“The Minneapolis-St. Paul airport is a key transportation hub and economic driver for communities all across our state,” said Smith. “This investment, made possible by the Infrastructure Law, will make our airport safer, greener, and more efficient. I’m excited to see this law making an impact and will keep pressing for opportunities to improve our state’s infrastructure.”
This funding is from the Airport Terminal Program, one of three aviation programs created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
