Almost $10 million in federal funds have been secured for Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to reconstruct a portion of a taxiway, U.S. Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Rep. John Sarbanes announced Thursday. The funds from the Federal Aviation Administration will direct $9.94 million to the airport to reconstruct a portion of Taxiway Z, which has reached the end of its useful life…. "This federal investment will help ensure that BWI Airport remains one of Maryland's key commercial and economic hubs," Sarbanes said in a statement. "I will continue working closely with my colleagues in the Maryland Congressional delegation to secure federal funds that improve infrastructure across our state." The grant will be awarded through the FAA's Airport Improvement Program, which funds various types of airport infrastructure projects, including runways, taxiways and airport signage, lighting and markings.
