Danville Regional Airport is getting nearing two-and-a-half million dollars for runway improvements.

Airport Director Marc Adelman says the money will be used for taxiway improvements to the lanes that parallel the main runways.

The upgrades were announced Thursday by U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine, who said Danville is getting more than $2.4 million in federal funds from the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration. The funds will be used to rehab the airport’s existing taxiways.

Warner said the grant will renovate the infrastructure that the local airport relies on to provide flyers with “a safe and reliable facility.”

The AIP provides grants for the planning and development of public-use airports that are significant to national air transportation.
