Voice of Alexandria: Feds Provide $2M For Falls Airport Improvements
(International Falls, MN) -- The U-S Department of Transportation will spend two-million dollars helping officials at Falls International Airport begin the first phase of a major renovation project. Congressman Rick Nolan and Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken had pushed the federal agency to provide the help. The existing airport terminal was built about four decades ago. Part of the money will pay for a jetway to move passengers from the terminal to aircraft without going outside into the weather.
