The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has given Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport $23 million in grants to help fund projects to rehabilitate the airport’s runways.
About $9 million will be dedicated to the projects on Runway 17R/35L and runway lighting on Runway 18L/36R, which are slated for completion at the end of 2016. The rest of the grant, $14 million, will go to phase three of the project on Taxiway L, which is scheduled for completion in early 2018.
The grants will cover 75 percent of the costs for each project.
The projects qualified for funding under FAA’s Airport Improvement Program, which funds airport safety, capacity and environmental projects.
