Contractor News reviewed the complete list of allocations to each of the more than 3,000 airports for recipients getting more than $50 million.

Los Angeles International will get $79 million, Hartsfield - Jackson Atlanta International Atlanta will get $92 million, Chicago O'Hare International will get $73 million, and John F Kennedy International will get $55 million.
“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has given us a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build safer and more sustainable airports that connect individuals to jobs and communities to the world. With this new funding, urban, regional and rural airports across the country now can get to work on projects that have waited for years, modernizing their infrastructure and building a better America,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said.
