Collins, King Announce $296,260 in Grant Funding For Two Maine Airports


WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded a total of $296,260 in grant funding to Caribou Municipal Airport and Dexter Regional Airport.

“Maine’s airports are important hubs for commerce, tourism and economic development in our state,” Senators Collins and King said in a joint statement. “This grant funding will help Dexter Regional Airport and Caribou Municipal Airport make critical improvements and ensure the facilities can adequately support the regions they serve.”

Caribou Municipal Airport will receive $217,935 to support the construction of a 200 foot taxilane to provide access to aircraft hangars. Dexter Regional Airport will receive $78,325 to support an updated master plan for the airport that will outline objectives for its future development. This updated plan will also include a Wildlife Hazard Assessment Study.

The funding is awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration, an agency within the DOT.
