“Montanans rely on safe and reliable service from rural and regional airports to grow their businesses and stay connected to family and friends — and investing in these airports is critically important to keep pace with growing demand and modern technology,” U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., noted in a press release. “I was proud to work across the aisle to secure these vital investments, and I’ll keep fighting to deliver projects like these to the communities that keep our state thriving.”

This funding can be used to construct or repair runways and taxiways as well as make terminal and gate improvements. Approximately $144 million for Montana’s airports was secured through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The funds will be awarded over a fiveyear period.
