The U.S. Department of Transportation said on Wednesday that Beverly Municipal Airport in Beverly, Massachusetts, will receive an infrastructure grant to fund upgrades.

 U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA), Beverly Mayor Michael Cahill, and U.S. Sens. Ed Markey (D-MA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) cheered the $714,600 grant.

"This grant will help fund improvements so that the Beverly Municipal Airport can continue to drive business activity in the area,” Warren said. "This funding is a great example of how the federal government can be a good partner for communities in Massachusetts. Mayor Cahill and the Airport Commission deserve a lot of credit for their work.”

“This investment in improvements to the Beverly Municipal Airport will help the entire North Shore economy take off and support business activity in the region,” Markey said. "I applaud Mayor Cahill, Senator Warren and Rep. Moulton for their efforts in securing this critical infrastructure funding.”

"The Beverly Municipal Airport is an important economic driver for the North Shore region," Moulton said. "This grant will ensure that the airport meets current FAA standards through much-needed runway improvements. I am grateful to the Department of Transportation for this key investment and to the City of Beverly for working with both my and Senators Warren and Markey’s offices to ensure that pilots can safely and efficiently use this airport in the future.”

“Beverly Municipal Airport is an incredible asset to Beverly and the region,” Cahill said. "These improvements, along with a new administration building which broke ground earlier this month, will provide the needed infrastructure to help the airport thrive for years to come. Thank you to the Airport Commission for their hard work in obtaining this grant and the Department of Transportation for awarding these necessary funds, as well as Senators Warren and Markey, and Congressman Moulton for their help in stewarding the request.”
