SHELBY ANNOUNCES $1 MILLION FOR DOTHAN REGIONAL AIRPORT

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced today that the Dothan-Houston County Airport Authority will receive $1 million from the Federal Aviation Administration for improvements at the Dothan Regional Airport.

Senator Shelby said, “I am pleased to make this announcement for Dothan Regional Airport. These funds will be used for improvements to the runway which is in poor condition due to severe cracking of the pavement surface. I was pleased to play a role in securing these funds so the airport may continue work on its improvement efforts.”

This funding, which was secured in the federal appropriations process, will be administered through the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program (AIP).
