Lipinski Announces Over $9 Million Federal Grant for Midway Airport

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) is announcing that the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration has awarded Midway Airport an over $9 million grant for various upgrades and repairs, including the installation of runway incursion markings, apron reconstruction, and the rehabilitation of runway and taxiway lighting.

“Midway serves an important role in both national air travel and our regional economy,” said Rep. Lipinski. “This investment will help to ensure that the airport is operating as safely and efficiently as possible. I will continue working to see that the federal government keeps investing in Midway and the neighborhoods and communities around it.” 

Congressman Lipinski is the senior member from the state on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and serves on the Aviation Subcommittee. Since coming into office, he has helped secure tens of millions of dollars for projects to improve the airport and surrounding communities.
