FAA Marks Completion Of Terminal Improvements At The
The FAA celebrated the completion of terminal improvements at
North Carolina’s Asheville Regional Airport on Thursday. The
project was paid for with $7.8 million in American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act funds.
“Investing in our nation’s airports provides an
important avenue for economic growth and helps us compete in the
global economy,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray
LaHood. “These improvements at Asheville Regional Airport
will result in business and employment opportunities in North
Carolina that will strengthen America’s future
The $7.8 million grant paid for improvements to Terminal
“A,” including departure gates, the security checkpoint
and replacement of two passenger boarding bridges. The funding
became available because other Recovery Act-funded airport projects
came in under budget.
“Upgrading infrastructure at airports such as Asheville
Regional is an important use of Recovery Act dollars, which are
helping to improve airport operations locally and across the United
States,” said FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt.
Under the Recovery Act, more than $1.3 billion has been made
available nationwide for both airport improvement projects and air
traffic control facility and system upgrades. Because of low
construction bids for projects, more Recovery Act dollars were
available for additional facilities, equipment and airport
projects. These grants have been distributed to airports that serve
commercial passengers, cargo and general aviation.
