MBS Terminal Project Gets Millions In Federal Aid 9-10-2010

MBS International Airport is getting a boost for its airport terminal reconstruction project.
The airport, which serves Midland, Bay City and Saginaw, was among five selected by the Federal Aviation Administration to share $9 million in grant money. Up to $3 million of that is expected to go to MBS.
In April of 2009, The federal stimulus package brought $12.7 million to MBS to help construct the passenger terminal.
The money for the airport serving the Midland, Bay City and Saginaw areas will come through the Federal Aviation Administration.
Ground was broken on the $48 million terminal expansion in Tittabawassee Township.
“The project really sets the foundation for the airport to be around -- and be a strong part of the community -- for the next several decades,” said MBS Airport manager Jeff Nagel.
Construction was expected to bring in about 250 jobs to Mid-Michigan. The 75,000 square-foot project is expected to be completed by 2013.
In July, the FAA awarded more than $3.4 million in grants to Bishop International Airport in Flint to renovate and expand that facility's terminal building.
In January 2009, Bishop Airport received a $6.1 million grant to help fund construction of taxiways and expansion of aprons at the airport.
