Grant expected to repair air carrier ramp

Nearly $1 million has been allocated for repair work on an air carrier ramp at Grand Junction Regional Airport.

No work will begin immediately, however, airport manager Rex Tippets said.

The funding covers only about one-fifth of the cost of the $5 million project, he said.

The ramp is damaged beyond repair, but no action can be taken until the full grant is in hand.

The remainder of the money could come in anytime, depending on Congress’s schedule.

U.S. Rep. John Salazar, D-Colo., whose district includes most of the Western Slope, said he would continue to support such projects “that strengthen our infrastructure and put people to work.”
