Arkansas’ commercial passenger airports to receive federal grant money

The Northwest Arkansas National Airport is set to receive grants for terminal upgrades, while the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field will be getting a new central utility plant. Additionally, Texarkana Regional Airport will see the construction of a new terminal building. These much-needed improvements will greatly benefit the airports and the passengers who utilize them.

The grants are part of the Federal Airport Terminals Program, and they will help to modernize and improve the facilities at these airports. Specifically, the $8 million grant from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will be used to fund a new utility plant at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field, which is a necessary step before a new arrivals hall and concourse can be built. This will help to increase capacity and improve the overall experience for travelers using the airport.

It’s clear that these grants are a vital investment in the future of these airports, and they will help to ensure that they can continue to meet the needs of passengers for years to come. With the support of these funds, the airports will be able to make necessary upgrades and improvements that will benefit both the airports themselves and the people who use them.
