WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Mike Bost (IL-12) today announced the Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois in Marion will receive a $673,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to reimburse certain construction costs for the 23,732 square foot airport terminal completed in 2016.

“The new terminal building at Marion’s Veterans Airport has allowed the facility to grow and better serve an increasing number of passengers,” said Bost. “This investment in Southern Illinois travel will help grow the local economy and better connect Southern Illinois with transportation hubs around the country for years to come.”
