The US Secretary of Transportation has announced that airports around the country will receive $46m under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

The funding, which is in addition to the $258m in ARRA funds announced in April, will be spent on airports in Alabama, Alaska, California, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

About 3,400 airports designated as part of the national airport system are eligible to receive ARRA funds, which will be distributed based on a project priority system that addresses airport safety and security, infrastructure, runway safety, increased capacity and mitigation of environmental impacts.

Transport Secretary Ray LaHood said that it was essential that economic recovery funding is rapidly made available for transportation infrastructure projects and that project spending is monitored and transparent.

“The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is creating jobs across the country today while laying the foundation for the safety and economic vitality of our airports in the years to come,” said LaHood.

The FAA is moving swiftly to work with airport sponsors to ensure eligible projects have completed or nearly completed, design and planning requirements.
