Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is announcing that Lehigh Valley International Airport is receiving $6,869,431 in new infrastructure funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). This grant is an award from the Airport Improvement Program.
“This $6.8 million award for Lehigh Valley International Airport adds to the flow of much-needed funds for the airport that serves one of the fastest growing regions in Pennsylvania,” said Senator Casey. “When I visited the airport in March, I saw the progress they are making on the terminal connector and the new TSA check point for incoming passengers. With increased capacity at the terminal, the airport’s runways need to be able to keep up. This funding will ensure that happens.”
This funding will be used to rehabilitate the airport’s runways, including improving runway lighting to ensure safe operations. With this funding, Lehigh Valley International Airport has received a total of $23,377,714 in federal investments since the start of 2021.
