Must read

WASHINGTON D.C. (WDEF) – Georgia’s senators today announced federal funding that will go to airports across the state from the infrastructure law.

The money will be used by local airports for upgrades to runways, taxiways, safety systems and transit connections.

Dalton’s Municipal Airport will get $294,000.

The airport in Ellijay is getting $144,000.

And LaFayette’s Barwick field also gets 144,000 dollars.

“Georgia is one of the nation’s most important aviation states, and these major funding awards to strengthen our airports and improve the flying experience for consumers and workers alike are exactly the kinds of investments Senator Ossoff and I envisioned when we were pushing to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,” said Senator Warnock. “I’m thrilled to see the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law continuing to deliver for Georgians in every corner of the state, and I’m going to continue working on the Senate Commerce committee to keep air travel safe and our aviation economy strong.”
