MDN: Memphis Airport Receives $12.4 Million Federal Grant

Congressman Steve Cohen has announced a $12.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to go toward the modernization of the Memphis International’s Airport’s Concourse B as well as improvement of security and the access road.

The Airport Improvement Program grant will fund the initial design phase for modernization of Concourse B after the elimination of Delta Airlines’ hub. The five-year plan includes consolidating all usable gates in Concourse B and mothballing Concourse A for future airline growth. Funds will also go toward the rehabilitation of 300 feet of pavement to improve the existing commercial access road to the airport and various security enhancements required by the Transportation Security Administration.

“Memphis International Airport is a critically important transportation link in the Mid-South region,” Cohen said. “This funding will help the airport continue to make upgrades to serve travelers safely and efficiently for many years to come.”
