Representative Conor Lamb and a bipartisan group of Pennsylvania Members of Congress have announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded the Allegheny County Airport Authority (ACAA) an $18.69M grant through the Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Transportation Discretionary Grant program. ACAA applied for the grant to support the construction of a 75,000 square-foot cargo processing facility and an adjacent surface parking lot to expand air cargo operations at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) known as the “Cargo 4 Project.”
“This grant means more cargo at our airport. More cargo means more jobs and investment in our region,” said Lamb.
“This federal grant shows there is confidence at the highest levels that Pittsburgh is a great place to do business, especially because of all of the hard work done to modernize our airport.”
