North Carolina Airports Receiving Over $458 Million Thanks to President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Thanks to President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, airports across North Carolina will receive more than $458 million over the next five years. This funding will make taxiway and runway expansions, renovate terminals and improve noise prevention. In total, 71 airports in North Carolina will receive funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. 

North Carolina’s top 10 airports will receive the following yearly allocation from the historic bill:  

  • Charlotte Douglas International Airport: $43.2 Million
  • Raleigh-Durham International Airport: $14.6
  • Piedmont Triad International Airport: $5.1 million
  • Asheville Regional Airport: $4.3 million
  • Wilmington International: $3.7 million
  • Fayetteville Regional/Grannis Field: $2.1 million
  • Concord-Padgett Regional: $1.8 million
  • Albert J Ellis: $1.7 million
  • Coastal Carolina Regional: $1.4 million
  • Pitt-Greenville: $1 million

“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law passed thanks to President Biden and the North Carolina Democratic congressional delegation. Now, North Carolina will receive more than 458 million dollars over the next five years to improve and expand airports across the Tar Heel state. This funding will bring more tourism, business and jobs to our state while making travel safer for North Carolinians. Heading into 2022, we’ll make sure voters know that Democrats delivered while every Republican in the U.S. House from North Carolina opposed this critical funding,” said NCDP Spokesperson Ellie Dougherty
