Ami Bera : Congressman Ami Bera Announces Nearly $800k Grant for Runway Upgrades to Mather Airport

07/25/2016 | 12:46pm EDT

Sacramento - Today, Congressman Ami Bera (CA-7) announced a major grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for upgrades to Mather Airport's runways. The grant of $788,500 will be used to rehabilitate and upgrade the taxiway to FAA standards and to install runway lights along the taxiway. Congressman Bera was joined by Airport Director John Wheat and Airport Chief Administrative Officer for Planning and Development TJ Chen, and will discussed other ongoing projects to improve the safety and efficiency of the airport.

'This investment in Sacramento Mather Airport is great news for our community,' said Congressman Bera. 'Improving the conditions of the runway and safety with lights is critical to attracting, maintaining, and expanding private investment and economic development in the area. Making our airport more convenient and efficient to passengers and businesses has a positive impact on our community and our economy.'

'Sacramento County is grateful of the efforts made by the Congressman to secure Federal funding from the FAA to improve the airfield at Mather Airport, which is a vital component of the aviation and cargo infrastructure for the Sacramento region,' said Airport Director John Wheat.

This grant will fund the rehabilitation of approximately 670 feet of the existing connector Taxiway B-North that is needed to maintain structural integrity of the pavement. It will also fund the installation of a new Taxiway B-North edge lighting system to enhance safe airfield operations during low visibility conditions.
