WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.), announced that the Monterey Regional Airport has been awarded a federal grant totaling $1,814,764 from the Department of Transportation.

“Our local economy relies heavily on tourism and local business travel,” said Congressman Panetta. “This federal grant will provide our regional airport with the necessary funds needed to keep travelers safe.”

This project will fund the full rehabilitation of both the current Runway 10R/28L lighting system and the current Taxiway A lighting system. The new lights will enhance safe airfield operations during low visibility conditions.
