McALLEN, Texas – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced it granted $5 billion through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to provide grants for airport terminal development projects for improvements aimed at addressing the aging infrastructure of the nation’s airports. These grants will fund safe, sustainable, and accessible airport terminals, on-airport rail access projects, and airport-owned airport traffic control towers. Additional projects include multimodal development.
FAA awarded McAllen International Airport $1.98M for HVAC and lighting improvement. “The federal funding, we received today will assist the airport in completing important capital improvement projects. Thank you to Representative de la Cruz for her assistance in securing these federal funds and for her support of McAllen International Airport. We look forward to a strong working relationship with Congresswoman de la Cruz and her team as we work together on key airport infrastructure funding requests,” said McAllen City Manager Roel “Roy” Rodriguez, P.E.
“McAllen International Airport is committed to the continuous improvement of infrastructure and equipment. The funded HVAC and lighting system improvements will make the airport more energy efficient, improve sustainability, and reduce overall operating expenses. We will continue to work diligently to expend grant funds and complete funded projects in a timely manner,” said Director of Aviation, Elizabeth Suarez.
