Shelby Announces $748,600 for Robbins Field

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation has awarded $748,600 for Robbins Field in Oneonta, Alabama, to improve its runway safety area.

“Efficient transportation systems are critical to attracting new citizens, tourists and businesses,” said Shelby.  “Robbins Field will use this funding to rehabilitate its runway and improve its safety area.  We must ensure that our local airports have the infrastructure necessary to provide for the safety of their passengers.”
