Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Airport is getting some cash flow from a Department of Transportation grant. Three Maryland lawmakers announced $9.94 million in federal funds for the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Airport through the U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration. The funds will be used to reconstruct a portion of Taxiway Z. The announcement comes from U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Rep. John Sarbanes (all D-Md). Sen. Cardin called BWI a huge asset to the state, and the nation, saying that much of the region’s commerce is dependent on the airport’s operation…. Rep. Sarbanes also said the investment will ensure that the airport remains a Maryland economic hub.
