WASHINGTON (WNEM) -

U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters today announced a $4,387,392 grant for Bishop International Airport in Genesee County from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The grant will help the airport rehabilitate its runway, replace and install new runway lighting, and remove trees that could obstruct several runways.

"This investment will make travelling to and from Genesee County safer and more efficient," said Senator Stabenow.  "By supporting Bishop Airport, we're also encouraging businesses to invest in the region and create jobs."

“Many travelers rely on Bishop International Airport for travel to and from the Flint and Bay Region,” said Senator Peters. “This funding will improve airport operations and facilitate safe air travel while encouraging economic growth in the region.”
