Shelby Announces $2.3 Million for Mobile Regional Airport

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 $2,341,822 to Mobile Regional Airport to rehabilitate its taxiway.

"The deteriorated taxiway at Mobile Regional Airport must be reconstructed,” said Shelby. “As south Alabama continues to expand, we must ensure that our smaller airports have the infrastructure needed to meet its demands.  Allowing for easier access to the community by air will help to attract new businesses and jobs, encourage even more economic growth throughout the area.”
