LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — According to U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, the U.S. Department of Transportation will be giving $111,940 to the Capital Region International Airport.

“Having reliable and safe air service is important to Michigan tourism, commerce, and economic development. This grant is an important investment in the infrastructure of our airports and will help our communities rebound from the pandemic.”

The Federal Aviation Administration grant will help improve the airport’s runways. The grant was made possible in part by the American Rescue Plan Act, which Stabenow and Peters helped pass in Congress.

Ensuring safe and reliable air travel – particularly through our state’s capital – is critical to keeping communities and businesses across Michigan connected to important markets and destinations. I’m pleased to announce this federal grant to Capital Region International Airport in Lansing, which will help strengthen the airport’s transportation infrastructure and provide safer travel for Michiganders.”
