Hoeven: DOT Awards More than $260,000 to Enhance Mohall, Hettinger Municipal Airports

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded $262,712 to the City of Mohall and to the Adams County Airport Authority to support improvement projects at Mohall Municipal Airport and Hettinger Municipal Airport, respectively.

“As North Dakota’s population and economy continue to grow, it’s important for us to invest in infrastructure that will meet our state’s needs,” Hoeven said. “Today’s funding reflects our ongoing efforts to improve infrastructure across North Dakota, and I will continue working to make sure our airports can meet the demands of the businesses and individuals who rely on them to continue the work that is creating economic growth in our state.”

The funds are awarded as follows:

  • City of Mohall – $167,785 – To fund a 200 foot taxiway extension to connect the parallel taxiway to the new apron area at Mohall Municipal Airport. The funds will also be used to support the construction of a new apron to provide aircraft parking.
  • Adams County Airport Authority – $94,927 – To fund asphalt runway pavement reconstruction in order to preserve the structural integrity of the pavement at Hettinger Municipal Airport.

As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Hoeven works to support programs that invest in infrastructure and other services to meet the needs of North Dakota’s growing population and commerce. Earlier this month, Hoeven announced $5.7 million in federal funding to support improvement projects at Hettinger and Mohall Municipal Airports.
