The Oregon Transportation Commission awarded 21 Connect Oregon grants to the Eugene Airport as one of the successful applicants! The $1.4 million grant will widen Taxiways Juliet and Lima to the Air Cargo Apron, allowing for larger aircraft to utilize the Air Cargo Facility, which will enhance both charter and air cargo operations. Total project cost is estimated at $2 million.
Kudos to Odette Oppe, Patricia Haley, Dan Durazo and Andrew Martz on developing this project and compelling grant application. Additional thanks to our many tenant and community partners who provided letters of support for this project. Construction is slated for July 2023!
