U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters today announced a $86,400 grant for Charlevoix Municipal Airport from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The grant will help the airport rehabilitate its runway lighting system and groove a portion of the runway to eliminate hydroplaning.

"This investment will make travelling to and from Northern Michigan safer and more efficient," said Senator Stabenow. "By supporting the Charlevoix Airport, we're also encouraging businesses to invest in the region and create jobs."

"A safe, modern and efficient transportation system is key to expanding economic growth and creating new jobs in Michigan," said Senator Peters. "This funding for the Charlevoix Airport will help upgrade the airport's runways to facilitate safe air travel to Northern Michigan, helping to increase tourism and commerce."
