A Green Bay airport is part of a 273-million-dollar federal grant program for airport safety and infrastructure.
An access road will be improved at Green Bay-Austin STraubel International Airport at a cost of 282 thousand dollars. The F-A-A is distributing the money to airports in 41 states. U-S Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao has said the program will “strengthen safety, improve travel, generate jobs, and benefit local communities.” No local funds will be spent on the dozens of projects. The 242 million from the federal Airport Improvement Program and 31 million from the CARES Act will cover all expenses.
