The U.S. Department of Transportation last week announced the award of $616.9 million of Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grants for facilities in 45 states and four U.S. territories. This is the fourth allocation of this year's AIP funding of $3.18 billion. Awards typically range from a few thousand dollars to tens of millions and are determined according to each airport's activity and capital needs. The money goes toward maintenance, repair and new construction of taxiways, terminals and other airport infrastructure. Among the 408 airport infrastructure projects this round of funding will support are a noise mitigation initiative at San Diego International; $13.2 million for runway rehabilitation at Bradley International in Windsor Locks, Connecticut; and $20 million for a noise mitigation project at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International. The agency also issued letters of intent and grants totaling more than $93 million for runways and other work at Chicago O'Hare International.
