WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), and Pete Ricketts (R-Neb.) announced the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) will receive $15.3 million in federal funding. These funds will be used to enhance and maintain existing infrastructure at 21 airports statewide.

“From Omaha to Chadron, Atkinson to Lexington — Nebraska’s airports connect our communities, ensure accessibility for travel, and grow the rural economy. I was proud to vote for the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to support Nebraska’s airports. Nebraska continues to see a return on that investment, as our state will now receive $15.3 million to support and maintain essential airports statewide,” said Senator Fischer.

“Nebraska’s airports are essential to our state’s economy. These strategic investments in critical infrastructure will improve safety and support the continued growth of communities across our state,” said Senator Ricketts.
