Bryce Canyon Airport will receive $5 million to rehabilitate its runway, while Canyonlands Field in Moab will receive $4.75 million to construct a taxiway. The Roosevelt Municipal Airport was awarded $9 million for a runway, taxiway, lighting and drainage improvements.

This second and final increment of supplemental funding was funded through the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, which provided an additional $1 billion in funding above the $3.31 billion awarded in the regular Airport Improvement Program funding during fiscal year 2018.
