WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - U.S. Senators from Kansas Jerry Moran and Roger Marshall announced Monday 23 U.S. Department of Transportation grants for Kansas airports totaling $25,543,660. These grants will be used to make repairs and upgrades to the airports.

Wichita’s Dwight. D. Eisenhower Airport will receive more than $15 million to be granted over the 2022 and 2023 fiscal years. The money will go toward reconstructing 107,705 yards of existing general aviation apron pavement that “has reached the end of its useful life.”

“Local airports help bring economic opportunities and critical resources to communities across Kansas,” Moran said. “These grants are an investment into regional Kansas airports to make certain they are running safely and efficiently to support interstate commerce and travel to and from Kansas.”

“Airports throughout our state provide essential services and expand business opportunities for Kansans,” Marshall said. “Through these grants, each of these airports will be able to make crucial repairs and upgrades. No doubt, the improvements made will allow the airports to better serve Kansas communities, and I’m glad to see this type of investment in our airports.”
