The Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport will receive federal funding of $10 million to rehabilitate its runway and for airfield operations.

The announcement was made Wednesday by members of Arkansas’ congressional delegation: U.S. Sens. Mark Pryor and John Boozeman, and U.S. Rep. Steve Womack of the 3rd District.

“The single, most important step we can take to create private-sector jobs is to invest in our infrastructure,” Pryor said in a news release. “These federal funds will ensure the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport remains a vital travel hub in our state, bringing jobs, businesses, and economic development to northwest Arkansas.”
