Shelby Announces $111,240 for Madison County Executive 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 $111,240 to the Madison County Executive Airport to expand its runway apron.

“It is critical that Madison County has a strong airport infrastructure in place to support its community,” said Shelby.  “Recently, the Madison County Executive Airport has experienced an increase in the types of aircraft utilizing its facilities.  This funding will allow the airport to expand its apron to a size adequate for both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.”
