WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Susan Collins, the Chairman of the Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee, and Angus King today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded $531,999 to the Steven A. Bean Municipal Airport in Rangeley to support work to expand and reconstruct the airport’s apron.
“Maine’s regional airports encourage economic growth, connecting our state’s communities to vital resources and industries,” Senators Collins and King said in a joint statement. “This funding will help support the airport’s productivity, enhance its capacity, and drive economic growth throughout the Rangeley area.”
The grant funding is awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration, an agency within the DOT.
