Lewiston Airport project gets $5M in federal grants, part of $37M statewide

Nearly $5 million dollars in federal grants has been awarded to the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Regional Airport to use towards a major construction project.

Most of the money – $4.1 million – is earmarked for the construction of buildings to house aircraft rescue and firefighting equipment, and tools for snow removal.  Another $750,000 will go toward the acquisition of a rescue vehicle.

The funding is part of some $37 million awarded to Idaho airports through the Federal Aviation  Administration’s Airport Improvement Program.

In all, 24 recipients received 33 grants to maintain and improve the Gem State’s airport facilities. (ITD)
