The Minnesota Department of Transportation is awarding more than 26-million dollars in F-A-A grants to 14 airports in rural parts of the state and Fergus Falls is one of them. MnDOT awarded $493,000 to the Fergus Falls Airport to be used primarily to preserve pavement runways and improve the infrastructure for local communities.
MnDOT's Cassandra Isackson was quoted as saying that the funding will help secure safe, efficient air operations for airports serving greater Minnesota.
