FAA awards $1 million construction grant to Grand Forks airport

The Federal Aviation Administration will award a construction grant of more than $1 million to Grand Forks International Airport, North Dakota's congressional delegation announced today.

The Federal Aviation Administration will award a construction grant of more than $1 million to Grand Forks International Airport, North Dakota's congressional delegation announced today.

The funding was put on hold in July during a disagreement in the House and Senate over the next FAA budget. Congress, though, reached a deal last week that restores the agency's funding for the next month and reinstated airport construction grants.

The $1,081,671 will help cover paving, fencing, additional construction and reimbursement for engineering costs related to the new $21 million Byron L. Dorgan Terminal.

Sens. Kent Conrad and John Hoeven and Rep. Rick Berg will be at the airport Wednesday for the dedication of the new terminal being named in honor of former Sen. Byron Dorgan, who helped direct nearly $50 million in airport-related funding to Grand Forks during his time in office.
