Reno airport getting $2.2 million in stimulus funds

The Associated Press

RENO, Nev. ” The Reno/Tahoe International Airport is getting $2.2 million in federal stimulus funds to improve surfaces near the terminals.

Airport spokeswoman Heidi Berthold says the money will be used for the ramp areas where airplanes pull up to the terminals for passengers to board and exit planes.

Berthold says some of the pavement near the terminals is about 20 years old.

Berthold says between 80 and 100 people will have jobs because of the contract. That includes contractors, vendors and suppliers.

The White House announced the funds on Friday, as well as $1.3 million for the Boulder City Airport.
