The Norfolk Regional Airport is one of four in Nebraska to receive a U.S. Department of Transportation discretionary grant, U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer of Valentine said Monday.
The other three are Eppley Airfield in Omaha, McCook Regional Airport and Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island.
“Our airports in Nebraska help ensure that families can travel safely and businesses can deliver their high-quality products to market. I’m happy to announce these grants are headed to Eppley Airfield and to regional airports in McCook, Grand Island, and Norfolk. These continued investments in our state’s infrastructure provide for major improvements and will make a big difference in our state’s future,” Fischer said.
The Norfolk Regional Airport/Karl Stefan Memorial Field will receive a $738,861 grant for runway rehabilitation work, Fischer said.
