U.S. Senators Mark Pryor (D) and John Boozman (R) and Congressman Rick Crawford (R) announced that the West Memphis Municipal Airport will receive a $10 million Department of Transportation grant to rehabilitate its runway.
“Safe and reliable transportation infrastructure is critical to economic development in Arkansas,” Pryor said. “Reinvesting these federal dollars in the West Memphis Municipal Airport will benefit local businesses and residents alike.”
“These funds will not only improve safety at West Memphis Municipal Airport, but help facilitate economic development which will lead to more jobs in the private sector,” Boozman said.
“The West Memphis Municipal Airport helps drive the local economy. Improving the infrastructure at the airport will help local businesses growth and local communities prosper,” Crawford said.
