The Dayton International Airport has received a $4.8 million grant to remove the Concourse D building and expand the apron area around the terminal.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced the Federal Aviation Administration grant.
The project will ensure a clear line of sight between the control tower and the aircraft movement area near the terminal.
“Providing the means for projects such as this ensures continuing safe operations at our nation’s airports,” LaHood said. “In addition, investing in our nation’s airports promotes economic growth.”
The grant will fund the removal of the Concourse D building, along with rehabilitating and expanding the apron area around the terminal. Demolition of the Concourse D building is scheduled to begin this year and the entire project is scheduled to be completed by late 2013.
