Three Mississippi airports will receive more than $7.2 million
in federal funds to repair terminal buildings, hangars, airfield
equipment and other facilities damaged by Hurricane
Katrina, SecTran Norman Y. Mineta said. The money will go to
Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, Stennis International
Airport in Bay St. Louis and Dean Griffin Memorial Airport in
“The economic revival of the Gulf Coast will hinge in
large part on the resumption of air service to all airports big and
small,” said Secretary Mineta.
International Airport will receive $4.7 million to help reconstruct
the terminal building, cargo facility, airport hangars, rental
facility, and airfield equipment, Mineta said.
Stennis International Airport will receive $2.1 million in
federal funds for repairs to the terminal building, emergency power
system, and fencing, as well as for the design of hangars and
airport drainage improvements, reconstruction of some taxiways and
replacement of apron lighting, he added.
Dean Griffin Memorial Airport will receive $450,000 to rebuild
damaged hangars, he said. The funds come from the Airport
Improvement Program of the DoT’s FAA. The Department
previously provided $4.6 million immediately following the disaster
to airports in Mississippi.
