Shreveport Downtown Airport receives more than $100,000 for runway rehab

On Friday, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced the Shreveport Downtown Airport will receive $100,692 for runway rehabilitation.

The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded the Shreveport Airport Authority a grant for rehabilitation of 5,000 feet of Runway to maintain the structural integrity of the pavement and to minimize foreign object debris.

This grant funds the design phase.

“Our Shreveport airports are economic generators for Northwest Louisiana and the surrounding region. They facilitate jobs, revenue and quick access to and from the greatest state in the country. But for success and progress to continue, we must ensure our airport facilities remain functional and up-to-date,” said Congressman Mike Johnson (LA-04). “We are grateful for DOT’s investment into our community and look forward to seeing how these small improvements will unlock rapid growth for Shreveport and Louisiana’s Fourth Congressional District.”
