WASHINGTON – The Department of Transportation has awarded the Moorhead Airport more than $400,000 for infrastructure improvements, the state’s U.S. senators announced Monday.

Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken said in a news release that the airport will receive $411,259, allowing the airport to construct a taxiway and improve airport drainage.

“The Moorhead area has seen extreme flooding over the years, causing flight delays and disrupting travel,” Klobuchar said. “This support will improve Moorhead Airport’s design to help ensure it can continue to serve Minnesotans despite inclement weather.”

Franken said the improvements will help the airport provide better service for the region.

“This grant will modernize our airport infrastructure, improve airport safety, help create jobs, and go a long way towards updating Minnesota’s overall transportation infrastructure," he said.
