WASHINGTON D.C. – Louisiana’s airports will receive over $35 million in funding from the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), according to a release from Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA). Of this the Jonesboro Airport will receive $110,000.00
The IIJA is a bipartisan bill that addresses provisions related to federal-aid highway, transit, highway safety, motor carrier, research, hazardous materials, and rail programs of the Department of Transportation (DOT)
This additional funding only accounts for the fiscal year 2022. Louisiana can expect to receive similar sums of funding for airport infrastructure from the infrastructure bill each year for the next four years. Local leaders and airports will decide which projects they ultimately fund with this additional funding.
