Yarmuth Announces more than $13 Million for Louisville International Airport

 

 

(Washington, DC) Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) announced that Louisville International Airport will receive $13.4 million from the Department of Transportation to expand and improve its facilities.

“Maintaining and improving Louisville International remains a top priority. Together with partners like UPS, the airport provides jobs for more than 40,000 Louisvillians, making it a critically important economic engine for the region,” Congressman Yarmuth said. “This funding will go a long way toward ensuring the facility remains competitive, safe, and efficient.”

“We are grateful for Congressman Yarmuth’s strong support and assistance in securing this funding, as it will help the airport meet the challenges of the 21st century by providing state-of-the-art infrastructure,” said J.D. Nichols, Chairman of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority.

The Federal Aviation Administration is allocating $9,486, 554 to Louisville International Airport for the construction of additional taxiways and for rehabilitation of the apron area and runway lighting.

The facility will receive an additional $4,000,000 to extend and develop taxiways as part of a program established by the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century.
