Nebraska DOT Announces $20.85M in Federal Grants to Omaha and Lincoln Airports

LINCOLN, NE — $20.85 million in federal grants through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law were recently awarded to two Nebraska airports, Omaha’s Eppley Airfield (OMA) and the Lincoln Airport (LNK), according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT). The grants are part of the FY22 Airport Terminal Program (ATP) Grants.

Omaha Eppley Airfield received $20 million for Phase 3 of a project to improve the terminal building access road. This project will construct a new terminal drop-off area and full canopy, increasing capacity by 65 percent with seven lanes. The project will reduce air pollution and use environmentally responsible infrastructure. The project also includes improved curb areas for ADA access and public transportation.

The Lincoln Airport received $850,000 for terminal modernization. Funds will be used to replace the existing terminal cooling towers, fans, internal exhaust decks, control equipment, and associated plumbing. This project is a part of the airport’s larger, locally funded $55-million project to expand and renovate its nearly 50-year-old terminal. This project’s overall aim is to resolve passenger and baggage screening area constraints.

“We really appreciate these additional funds made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to improve the passenger experience at our two largest airports,” said Ann Richart, AAE, Director of the Aeronautics Division of NDOT. “This will make a big difference for travelers using these airports."

These grants are part of nearly $1 billion awarded to 85 airports across the country to improve airport terminals in communities of all sizes.
