Federal grant will support the construction of a new pedestrian walkway connecting Concourse B to Terminal B

Today, U.S. Representative Ami Bera, M.D. (D-CA) announced that he helped secure $11.7 million in federal funding for the Concourse B expansion project at Sacramento International Airport (SMF). The federal grant, made possible through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law which Bera championed and voted for in November 2021, will support the design and construction of a new pedestrian walkway connecting SMF’s Concourse B to Terminal B, increasing capacity for passengers and enhancing accessibility for travelers.

“I am proud to secure these crucial funds for Sacramento International Airport,” said Representative Ami Bera, who represents California’s 6th Congressional district, which includes SMF. “This federal grant will help modernize SMF, helping flyers get to their destinations safely and more efficiently. I’ll continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to ensure the Sacramento region receives funding support from the historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.”

Despite the United States leading in the development of modern aviation, our airport infrastructure remains far behind other countries. According to some rankings, zero U.S. airports are ranked in the top 25 of airports worldwide. The Bera-championed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests $25 billon into American airports to reduce congestion, strengthen our supply chains, and help Americans travel more quickly and at lower costs.
