WASHINGTON - Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., R-Alto, today announced that the Esler Regional Airport in Pineville will receive a $1.8 million federal grant to rehabilitate its runway.
“This is terrific news. Both the military and private citizens use this airport and need a reliable runway. I’m excited that these federal funds are coming home to Rapides Parish and Louisiana’s 5th District,” Abraham said.
