Connect Oregon funding will support La Grande Union County Airport to add a new 10,000 gallon Jet A tank, build a maintenance shop, and aircraft hangar. In addition to this the Connect Oregon funding will also provide electric generators to power the Airport fuel farm and FBO office during power outages.

The additional Jet A to the fuel farm will help us to ensure fuel supplies for firefighting air tankers, ground support, and reduce the need for multiple deliveries.

The project start date is June 1, 2023 with a completion date planned for June 1, 2024
