The Lake Elmo Airport is getting funding for some upgrades.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded $238,489 in grants for infrastructure improvements at the airport. The grant will be used to reconstruct about 1,300 feet of the current taxiway at the airport.


U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken as well as Rep. Betty McCollum announced the new funding Wednesday.

“Investing in our infrastructure is critical to strengthening our economy for the 21st century,” McCollum said in a statement. “This grant will help ensure safety, improve efficiency and create jobs.”
