This busy airport, along with thousands of other projects, was created by the Works Progress Administration (WPA), a program that employed millions of Americans as a result of the New Deal.
The WPA gave thousands of Americans jobs during the 1930s through the federal and state governments. The WPA developed infrastructure that's still in use today. Much of this infrastructure is still in use today, but has not been continuously updated and is a political issue.
