Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chair of the Senate Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee, applauded the U.S. Department of Transportation’s announcement that the Friday Harbor Airport in the San Juan Islands will receive $268,000 in federal funding. Specifically, the grant will fund the final phase of construction to improve drainage to handle stormwater runoff near the runway, and prevent ponding on the airfield.
“This is great news for Friday Harbor and the communities throughout the San Juan Islands” said Senator Murray. “This investment will help improve safety and efficiency at the Friday Harbor Airport, and help support the economy and transportation needs of Washington state.”
