The Springfield-Branson National Airport will receive a grant for a major improvement.
Retiring Senator Roy Blunt earmarked $6.4 million dollars towards the cost of expanding the apron or tarmac at the airport’s terminal.
The expansion will lessen tarmac congestion as airliners arrive and depart.
It will also help prepare the airport for expansion of the terminal building.
The work is projected to start in two or three years.
