Maryland Lawmakers Announce Nearly $10 Million for BWI Airport
On Thursday, U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Representative John Sarbanes announced $9.94 million in federal funds for the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) through the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Lawmakers say these funds will be used 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,” said Congressman Sarbanes. “I will continue working closely with my colleagues in the Maryland Congressional Delegation to secure federal funds that improve infrastructure across our state.” This DOT grant will be awarded through the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program.
