Hoeven Announces More Than $1.8 Million in Funding for Minot Airpot

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded $1,832,693 to Minot International Airport. The funds will be used to acquire a new snow removal vehicle, design a new vertical/visual guidance system for runway 8/26, conduct environmental studies to try and reduce wildlife hazards to aircraft and to reconstruct the apron and service road providing access to the southwest part of the airfield.

“Minot’s airport is an important commercial and general aviation airport, and has grown steadily for the past several years,” Hoeven said. “That is why we worked hard to secure funding for a new commercial terminal at the airport. Today’s funds will help ensure that the airport’s infrastructure can continue to support demand while creating a safe environment for pilots and passengers.”
