Curbelo Announces Grant for Miami Executive Airport Taxiway Construction
Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) released the following statement announcing an $894,900 U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) grant for taxiway construction at the Miami Executive Airport (TMB):
“Miami Executive Airport is a hub for general aviation in South Florida, and this grant will help ensure it remains equipped with the proper resources and technology to maintain the safety of all passengers and airport personnel. I look forward to continuing my support for transportation initiatives in Congress that move South Florida forward.”
Funding for this program was made available in H.R. 244 “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017,” legislation supported by Curbelo. Previously, Curbelo helped secure funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for Miami Executive Airport’s runway improvement initiative during the 114th Congress.
