Big Federal Bucks headed to Oregon Airports

Newport Airport gets a quarter million dollars worth of improvements…

As the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) begins to make an impact across the nation, Oregon’s U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden today announced the allocation of $43 million in federal funding to Oregon’s airports for key infrastructure needs.

“Having safe and sustainable airports benefits Oregonians who want to stay connected to out-of-state loved ones, and businesses that rely on the airways to expand economic opportunity,” said Merkley. “We passed this bipartisan infrastructure plan to address critical infrastructure concerns in the state, and I’m pleased this funding will upgrade our regional airport facilities to provide more safer and reliable travel for all Oregonians. I will continue to fight for resources that tackle infrastructure problems at the source, and I look forward to seeing more results as this bipartisan law goes into effect.”

“Oregonians flying during the holidays and year-round, along with small businesses statewide counting on reliable air service for their products both know the importance of secure and dependable airports everywhere in Oregon.” Wyden said. ”The bipartisan infrastructure plan I’m proud to have supported helps airports large and small in Oregon. And I’ll keep battling for Oregon to get our fair share of federal resources for these airports as well as for additional infrastructure needs in our state’s rural, urban and suburban communities.”

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act included a $3 billion provision for Airport Infrastructure Grants, which will allocate funding to support airports across the country. Both Merkley and Wyden supported the IIJA and its major investments in roads, bridges, ports, and airports.
