On February 27, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Federal Aviation Administration announced that 104 projects at 99 airports would receive a share of nearly $1 billion from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law in Fiscal Year 2023.
Among those airport projects, West Virginia International Yeager Airport (CRW) will receive $1 million under the Airport Terminal Program (ATP) for airport terminal upgrades, including improving ADA compliance and installing a new roof that has exceeded its useful life.
“CRW would like to thank U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), as well as Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) and the members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, for their hard work in helping to make the passenger experience more efficient and enjoyable by fighting for much-needed airport infrastructure improvements,” said Airport Director & CEO, Dominique Ranieri.
“CRW is our communities gateway to the world, and this funding will ensure we continue to operate safely and efficiently,” said Central West Virginia Regional Airport Authority Board Chairman, Ed Hill.
Under the ATP, the FAA is providing $5 billion to airports via discretionary, competitive grants for eligible terminal projects over a five-year period. Funding is going out to airports nationwide to benefit passengers with more reliable and efficient airport systems.
CRW received $2.1 million in 2021 from the first-year funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
