Hoeven Announces More Than $11.4 Million FAA Grant to Refurbish Bismarck Airport Runway

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded a $11,461,493 grant to the Bismarck Municipal Airport to rehabilitate the airport’s large 13/31 runway. Bismarck Airport is the second busiest airport in North Dakota and one of only eight airports in the state that offers commercial airline service.

“More than 100,000 people fly into Bismarck using commercial air service every year, and many others also use the airport for general aviation,” Hoeven said. “Today’s grants will refurbish the large runway at the Bismarck Airport. Ensuring the runway is in good shape will keep passengers and pilots safe and will help the airport – which has an economic impact of nearly $280 million – continue to serve the Bismarck community.”
