Des Moines International Airport Receives Grant for Runway Construction
DES MOINES, Iowa — The Des Moines International Airport just received a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to continue rehabilitating the runway. The grant gives the airport about $5 million for runway rehabilitation and about $600,000 for a taxiway rehabilitation. “At the completion of 2019 construction season, that runway will be completely reconstructed with the exception of the intersection and we are still trying to figure out how to complete that intersection because it crosses both runways and will shorten both runways,” Des Moines International Airport Executive Director Kevin Foley said.
