Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport will receive a $10 million federal grant to fix up one of its runway approaches, Maryland congressional delegation officials announced Thursday. The money from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program will be used for the reconstruction of BWI’s Taxiway Z, “which has reached the end of its useful life,” according to a news release from U.S. Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and U.S. Rep. John Sarbanes, all Democrats…. Sarbanes pledged to continue working with the congressional delegation to bring federal grant money for Maryland infrastructure projects. "This federal investment will help ensure that BWI Airport remains one of Maryland’s key commercial and economic hubs,” Sarbanes said in a statement.
