U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) has announced 96 investments for airport improvements across the state of Ohio totaling $49,429,435.

“Ohio airports are vital infrastructure supporting travel and commerce in our state,” Brown said. “These investments will enhance safety and operations at Ohio airports and improve travel for Ohio families and businesses.”

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration has awarded the investments as part of the Airport Infrastructure Grant program.

These awards were made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which Brown helped to write and pass.

The Bellefontaine Regional Airport was awarded $294,000 and $144,000 will be given to Grimes Field in Urbana.
