The inaugural Strategic Multi-Modal cycle should be approaching its final descent by the time you’re reading this. It’s been an interesting ride, a bit turbulent from time to time. The airports put together a lot of good projects and quality applications. I think the awards will reflect that.

Looking forward, the FY2025 rendition of the Airports Multimodal Program is right around the corner. We wanted to wrap up Strategic Multi-Modal before we started “old” Multimodal so that everyone had a clear picture to look at when selecting their FY25 projects. I don’t have an application due date yet but will pass that along when I do.

Lastly, the world lost a good one recently with the passing of Elton Jay. Obviously, he was an important part of the aviation community serving in numerous roles through the years. The Aeronautics Division of MDOT offers its condolences and prayers to the friends and family of Elton.
