Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport will receive federal funding to help with improvements. The Las Vegas Review Journal reported Sunday that the nation’s eighth busiest airport will get $17 million in grant money for upgrades. It’s part of $800 million in infrastructure spending being doled out to airports nationwide, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Airport spokesman Chris Jones says the funds will help with repairing the surface of an aircraft parking area as well as refurbishing a nearby gate for ground vehicles. The federal government grants are on top of $10 billion in grants airports are getting to keep operating during the coronavirus pandemic.
