Airport infrastructure projects funded

In November, the N.C. Board of Transportation approved state and federal grants for safety and airfield improvement projects at North Carolina airports.

More than $6.6 million in state and federal funding was awarded for projects that help airports increase capacity, attract new jobs and businesses and improve the safety of the pilots and passengers.

Two local airport projects were approved to receive grants.
