WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) announced today a grant for $4.5 million from the Department of Transportation for improvements at Lafayette Regional Airport.

The grant will fund the reconstruction of the airport apron, the area of the airport where aircrafts are parked, loaded, unloaded and fueled.

“The Lafayette airport is an important transportation hub for South Central Louisiana,” said Sen. Kennedy. “This grant is a great investment into the functionality of the airport, improving operations and commerce at the airport.”
