Ingalls Field On Infrastructure Funding List



U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine, both Virginia Democrats, have announced that airports in the state are expected to receive $399,740,660 in federal funds over the next five years as a result of the infrastructure deal signed into law last week.

Ingalls Field in Bath County is expected to receive $555,000. The funding will be distributed to Virginia airports over five years.

The funding represents Virginia’s share of $15 billion in direct grants to airports around the country as a result of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

Kaine and Warner said, “It’s with great pride that we applaud President Biden’s signing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act – a historic law that will bring critically-overdue funding into our communities and create a new generation of good-paying American jobs. The investments made possible by this law will bring Virginia’s infrastructure into the twenty-first century by fixing crumbling roadways, bolstering public transit systems, bridging the broadband gap, and strengthening our coastal resiliency. As former governors of Virginia, we know that getting a bill signed into law is only the beginning, and we’ll be working with folks on the ground to ensure this bill is implemented quickly and efficiently.”
