WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that $4,277,333 has been awarded to the City of Dayton by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The federal funds will be used to rehabilitate the runway pavement, relocate a perimeter road, install perimeter fencing, improve airport drainage, remove runway obstructions, and replace friction measuring equipment at Dayton International Airport.

“This is great news for Dayton,” Brown said. “These improvements will enhance the capacity of Dayton International Airport.  These federal dollars will go a long way in sustaining travel in and out of the airport for area residents and businesses.”

Dayton International Airport is a small-hub primary airport associated with Dayton.
