Shelby Announces $81,849 for Atmore Municipal Airport

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that Department of Transportation has awarded $81,849 for the Atmore Municipal Airport to acquire land for a runway protection zone.

“Efficient transportation systems are critical to attracting new citizens, tourists and businesses,” said Shelby.  “The Atmore Municipal Airport will use this funding to acquire land for a runway protection zone near its runway.  Acquiring a runway protection zone will ensure that the airport will be able to prevent congestion that may inhibit inbound aircraft approaches.”
