D/FW Airport receives $15M grant for infrastructure improvements

🕐 1 min read

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport has received two grants totaling $15 million from the Federal Aviation Administration for infrastructure improvements. The Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grants will be used for the rehabilitation of a taxiway and for the purchase of new equipment and infrastructure at D/FW Airport’s Terminal B.

“We want to thank our partners at the FAA for these needed infrastructure improvement grants,” said Sean Donohue, CEO at D/FW Airport. “We would also like to thank Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson and Congressman Kenny Marchant for their continuing support of the Airport.” The larger grant of $13 million will fund Phase 2 of the three-phase rehabilitation project for Taxiway L (Lima), which is underway. An additional $2 million grant which will fund new and environmentally friendly pre-conditioned air units used to cool jet boarding bridges, and the electrical infrastructure needed to operate those units, has come from the Voluntary Airport Low Emission (VALE) program of the AIP.
