WASHINGTON – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is awarding $20 million to 20 airport-owned airport traffic control towers across the country, spanning 17 states. The funding will be used to upgrade existing or build new control towers/.

This funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law goes to smaller and regional airports to improve safety and support critical aviation operations such as commercial passenger flights, cargo flights, emergency services, agricultural aviation, and flight training.

“These investments expand the resources available to airports and help ensure airport traffic control towers across the country and the men and women who work in them are able to effectively do their jobs and communicate with pilots,” said FAA Associate Administrator for Airports, Shannetta R. Griffin, P.E. “Not only does this help improve safety at our airports, but it creates good-paying jobs and helps boost local economies.”
