KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Department of Transportation will issue $14 million worth of grants for the state’s airports.

Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) made the announcement Wednesday, stating in a news release that airports are “vital” to the region.

“These grants will help fund needed repairs and expansions to multiple Kansas airports to continue providing efficient service to Kansans and continued development throughout the state,” Moran said in the release.

Among those are Lawrence Municipal Airport, which will receive $3.6 million to repair and rehabilitate its runway, and Emporia Municipal Airport, which will receive nearly $181,000 “to acquire additional land for the airport,” according to the release.
