Jefferson City Memorial Airport will receive about $295,000 in funding from the federal infrastructure bill, which has been signed by President Biden.

Jefferson City Public Works operations division director Britt Smith delivered an eight-page power point presentation this morning to the city’s public works and planning committee. Smith briefed 939 the Eagle on Wednesday afternoon, ahead of his presentation.

Jefferson City officials plan to use capital improvement sales tax funding and some federal infrastructure dollars for improvements at the Jefferson City Memorial Airport. The city is planning a $4.7 million project involving the air traffic control tower this year, and a $3.8 million airport taxiway reconstruction and lighting project next year.

The airport is located across the Missouri River, from the Capitol.
