The string of grant awards to benefit Mansfield Lahm Airport continues.

This week, the Federal Aviation Administration announced that Lahm was awarded funds under the Airport Improvement Program to acquire needed snow removal equipment.

In total, almost $800 million was awarded in airport safety and infsrastructure grants in 46 states and four US territories.

“This nearly $800 million Federal investment in airport infrastructure will strengthen safety, improve travel, generate jobs and provide many economic benefits for local communities,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

“These 383 grants will allow airport sponsors to either begin or complete construction projects that will maintain the safety and efficiency of our national airport system,” said FAA Administrator Stephen M. Dickson.

These grants will be used for a variety of critical infrastructure and safety projects. Some of the projects include purchasing aircraft rescue and firefighting equipment, constructing runways and taxiways, repairing runways and taxiways, installing aircraft lighting and signage, conducting airport master plan studies, and installing airport perimeter fencing.

The grant awarded to Mansfield Lahm Airport was for $1,444,444, and will replace dated equipment.
