Shelby Announces $629,760 for St. Clair County

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation will release $629,760 to St. Clair County to rehabilitate its runway apron.

“We must ensure that our smaller airports have the infrastructure needed to meet the demands of our growing communities,” said Shelby.  “St. Clair County will use this funding to rehabilitate its runway apron which will allow for easier access to the community by air and will attract new businesses and jobs, helping to spur economic growth throughout the area.”
