Shelby Announces $94,080 for Mobile Airport Authority

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Transportation has awarded $94,080 to the Mobile Airport Authority for the rehabilitation of its apron and airfield drainage improvements.

“A strong transportation infrastructure is critical to attracting new businesses and industry,” said Shelby.  “The Mobile Airport Authority will use this funding to make improvements to its apron and rehabilitate its drainage system, both of which are over 50 years old. These improvements will ensure that Mobile continues to have a strong airport infrastructure in place to support its community.”
