FAA Allocates Around $12 Million for new Terminal at Moscow – Pullman Airport

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will award nearly $1 billion from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding to 85 airports across the country to improve terminals of all sizes including Moscow – Pullman Regional Airport, Spokane International Airpot, and the Boise Airport.

The grants expand capacity at our nation’s airport terminals, increase energy efficiency, promote competition and provide greater accessibility for individuals with disabilities. Two grants will also be awarded to build new air traffic control towers. 

“Americans deserve modern airports that meet the needs of their families and growing passenger demand. Funded through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, today’s grants will improve airport terminals while also creating good jobs in communities across the country,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

At the Moscow – Pullman Regional Airport, $11,800,000 will be granted for the construction of the new terminal building replacing the existing terminal originally built for smaller aircraft. The new terminal will accommodate larger aircraft that serve the airport as well as the increase in passenger capacity. The new
terminal will have improved energy efficiency and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance.

The Spokane International Airport will receive $11,000,000 for the expansion of the Concourse C terminal will improve Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility for individuals with access and functional needs and add other Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified improvements.

The Boise Airport will also receive $960,000 for improvements to the terminal building include replacing the aging boiler with a newer more energy efficient boiler.
Additionally, new more energy-efficient skylights will be installed to provide a natural light source for the terminal. These improvements further support Boise’s clean energy goal.

“The work that goes in to build safer, more accessible, and sustainable terminals will provide opportunities for people across the nation. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is a critical investment not only in our nation’s infrastructure but an investment in the future of our country’s workforce,” said FAA Deputy Administrator A. Bradley Mims. 

Historically, the FAA has invested in runways, traffic control towers, and back-of-house infrastructure. Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, there is dedicated funding to support modernizing airport terminals across the country.
