Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced that the Knoxville Municipal Airport will receive a $3,590,781 grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grant program.

The funding will be used to reconstruct both the lighting system and 4,000 feet of existing runway.

“The Knoxville Municipal Airport plays a critical role in fueling economic development in the area, allowing the community to continue to grow,” said Loebsack. “I am pleased the Knoxville Municipal Airport is receiving this competitive funding, which will help the airport expand, while remaining safe.”
