WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) announced the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will grant Louisiana $1,215,000.00 to improve local airports from his Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). The New Orleans Lakefront Airport will receive $986,000 for the rehabilitation of a taxiway and the Concordia Parish Airport will receive $229,000 for the construction, modification, and rehabilitation of a hangar.
“Improving our airports is not only important for our residents, but to attract new businesses and stimulate economic growth,” said Dr. Cassidy. “The infrastructure law provides funding that allows for the investment in the future of Louisiana.”
Since last fall, Louisiana airports have received a total of $71.5 million in IIJA funding, with more expected over the next three years.
