DENVER — The U.S. Department of Transportation announced three Colorado airports have received grants for infrastructure improvement projects.
The Denver Post reported (http://dpo.st/2t1gKOL ) Monday that the airports received $7.1 million of the $230 million the department granted to airports nationwide.
The money will be split between Denver International Airport, Nucla’s Hopkins Field Airport and Front Range Airport in Watkins.
Hopkins Field received $4.57 million, Denver received $2.25 million and Front Range received $287,950.
The grants come as part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program, which provides grants for the planning and development of public-use airports.
In Denver, the money will go toward rehabilitating a taxiway. Front Range will also use the grant for a similar project.
Hopkins Field will reconstruct a runway.
