The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded $4.96 million in federal funds to Texarkana Regional Airport-Webb Field.

The money will be used to reconstruct the airport’s terminal building. This funding is awarded through the FAA’s second round of FY21 Airport Improvement Program grants.

The purpose of the Airport Improvement Program is for the planning and development of public-use airports that are included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems.

“The investment in Texarkana Regional Airport-Webb Field will greatly benefit the Texarkana community and Arkansas as a whole,” said U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Hot Springs.

“The FAA’s $4.9 million investment to reconstruct the terminal will be an important part of bolstering Southwest Arkansas’ economy through commerce, tourism, and access,” he added.
