LAKE CHARLES, La (BRPROUD) — U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) announced the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will grant the Lake Charles Regional Airport $1 million to construct new terminal departure and arrivals area canopies to provide shelter for passengers.

This funding is a result of the Bipartisan CARES Act, passed in March of 2020.

“A good airport is a city’s first impression to potential investors and job creators,” said Dr. Cassidy. “This project will benefit the Lake Charles region and help bring new opportunity to Louisiana.”
