Hoeven: DOT Awards More than $355,000 to Enhance Safety at Kenmare Municipal Airport

WASHINGTON - Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded $355,997 to the Kenmare Municipal Airport Authority to enhance airport safety.

“North Dakota’s airports play a key role in our continued growth and economic development,” Hoeven said. “This funding will go towards rehabilitating the Kenmare Municipal Airport’s runway lighting system, replacing the airport’s rotating beacon and replacing its lighted windcone. These measures will enhance airfield operations and help keep pilots and passengers safe.”
