U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken, along with Representative Collin Peterson, today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded Hallock Municipal Airport a grant of $243,021 for infrastructure improvements.

“Helping ensure our airports stay up-to-date makes for a commonsense investment,” Klobuchar said. “This support reflects a continued commitment to safety for all travelers to and from the Hallock Municipal Airport.”

“Strong investments in infrastructure lead to strong regional economies,” Franken said. “Investing in the Hallock Municipal Airport is a great example of how we can improve transportation and safety for travelers while creating and maintaining good jobs for Minnesotans.”

“This grant will prove the necessary resources for Hallock Municipal Airport to make important infrastructure improvements,” Peterson said. “These improvements will keep regional air travel safe and benefit the local economy.”

This grant will fund the first phase of a project to construct a T-hangar building and taxi lane and install precision approach path indicators and runway end identifier lights.
