Senators Peters, Stabenow Announce Investment in MBS International Airport

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow today announced a $748,175 grant for MBS International Airport in Bay County from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The grant will help the airport rehabilitate the concrete of its apron, the area of the airport where planes are parked.

“Ensuring that Michigan airports have updated infrastructure is important for securing safe air travel,” Senator Peters said. “I am pleased to announce this investment in MBS International Airport, which will encourage economic development.”

"This investment will make travelling to and from the Great Lakes Bay region safer and more efficient," said Senator Stabenow. "By supporting the MBS International Airport, we're also encouraging businesses to invest in the region and create jobs."
