Monterey Regional Airport Announces Grants Totaling $4.2 Million for Design and Construction of New Terminal Building

Monterey Airport

MONTEREY, CA. (Dec. 26, 2022) — With a $2.14 million grant from the
Department of Transportation received in late November, the Monterey
Regional Airport now has $4.2 million toward the design and construction
of a new airport terminal.

The funds are from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill for Federal Fiscal
Year 2023, along with another $2.14 grant from the same piece of
legislation from Fiscal Year 2022.

According to airport Executive Director Michael La Pier, the airport has
selected its architect for the project, HOK Group Inc., a design,
architecture, engineering, and urban planning firm, founded in 1955 and
based in St. Louis, Missouri, and are in the process of negotiating the
scope of work and cost of the project with HOK.

Design work will begin during the first quarter of 2023 and will take about
one year to complete. During the design phase, the airport will continue
to work with the Federal Aviation Administration and DOT regarding
funding for the design and construction of the new terminal building,
said La Pier. The terminal building will be completely financed using
grant funding and revenues from the airport. No property tax funding or
general obligation bonds will be used, he said.
