September 22, 2016

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration is awarding a $5.9 million grant to Clinton National Airport in Little Rock to rehabilitate the Adams Field taxiway.

The funding was announced Thursday by U.S. Sens. Tom Cotton and John Boozman and Rep. French Hill.

The project calls for improving 2,500 feet of the existing Taxiway A pavement.

Airport director Ronald Mathieu said the grant will pay for upgrades that will accommodate larger cargo aircraft that are sometimes diverted to the airport.
