FAA Awards Grant to Bismarck Airport

Posted: Updated:

After receiving nearly $2 million last week for runway repairs, the Bismarck Municipal Airport will see some more federal funding to address a different safety concerns.

The $3 million will be used to fill and replace multiple wetlands near the runway. Waterfowl from the wetlands potentially flying into planes taking off are a major safety concern, according to airport administration.

Working with the Army Corps of Engineers, the Bismarck Airport will relocate the wetlands to replace the once drained near the airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration is providing this grant.
