WSDOT Aviation Grant Recipients 2008

Previous Grant Awards


Airport Aid Grant Awards (2007-2009 Biennium)

2008 - WSDOT Awards $1.1 Million Towards 2008 Airport Improvement Projects

In its second round of grants during the 2007-2009 biennium the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Aviation has targeted 69% of the grant awards to pavement projects. In this second round of grants WSDOT Aviation awarded over $1.1 million in grants to 34 airports for 56 different projects. Even better - of that $1.1 million, WSDOT is using approximately $477,000 to leverage $16.7 million in federal funds. Airports also contribute a required 2.5% local match to federal funds for their specific projects. Therefore, the combination of state, federal and local match funds brings the grand project total for this round of grants to nearly $19 million.

Funding Breakdown

State $ 1,127,996
Federal $ 16,768,720
Local Match $ 904,375
Total $ 18,801,091


Priority on Pavement

Consistent with other grant rounds, WSDOT focused most of its funds - approximately $781,030 - towards pavement projects at Washington airports. As revealed in the most recent Airport Pavement Management System report, 23% of Washington airport pavements have deteriorated to the point where costly reconstruction or even rehabilitation is needed. For the rest of the airport pavements, preventative maintenance is required to avoid such costly repair. Through its grant program, WSDOT aims to fund more crucial pavement projects in order to benefit the state's overall air transportation system.

Other WSDOT-funded projects are in the areas of safety, maintenance, planning and other, security and runway safety:

22 Pavement $ 781,030
10 Safety $ 186,268
7 Maintenance, Planning & Other $ 89,125
12 Security $ 60,000
5 Runway Safety $ 11,573
Total $1,127,996


More interesting facts about this second round of 07-09 grants:

  • $3.5 million requested / $1.1 million funded
  • Forty-five airports applied / 34 funded
  • Eighty-one projects requested / 56 funded

WSDOT does not anticipate that a third round of grants will be offered this biennium, as has been the case the previous two biennium. The department will next solicit applications for the 2009-2011 bienniums’ first round of grants during April and May 2009.
