Bush Intercontinental Airport Receives $15-Million Grant

Text size: A A

George Bush Intercontinental Airport received a $15-million Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program Grant for taxiway rehabilitation. It will rehab one of the five major runways to accommodate larger aircraft and extend its life by 30 years.

New runway center line and runway status lights will be installed as part of the project.

Two of the taxiways were constructed in 1965. A concrete overlay was added in 1976 to accommodate larger aircraft. Taxiways typically have a 20-year design life.

Rehabilitating the taxiways with a new overlay will extend their use for 30 years and enable them to handle larger Group VI aircraft. Timeline for the project was not available.
