Rep. Lipinski Announces $2.5 Million Federal Grant for Midway Airport

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) has announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration has awarded Midway Airport a $2.5 million grant to enhance the safety and efficiency of the airfield.  The grant will be used to reconfigure a taxiway to provide clarity to pilots at the runway intersection. 

“Midway is one of America's busiest airports and a major economic engine in the Third Congressional District,” said Rep. Lipinski.  “This grant will help 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.”

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 safety improvements at Midway Airport.
