The Arlington Municipal Airport and Paine Field are receiving nearly $2 million in federal grants to make the airports safe, Rep. Rick Larsen, D-Wash., announced Tuesday.
Arlington Municipal Airport will receive $1.2 million to install a new taxiway lighting system and fund other safety-improvement projects.
Snohomish County-owned Paine Field will receive $773, 915 to purchase a new aircraft rescue and fire fighting vehicle.
"We can't have a big league economy with little league infrastructure," Larsen said in a statement. "Smart investments in our transportation infrastructure create jobs and improve safety for pilots, passengers and nearby communities."
The grants are coming from the Federal Aviation Administration.
