The grant will go to the first phase of a $44 million taxiway system improvement project to increase traffic flow at BWI.

The Salisbury-Ocean City-Wicomico Regional Airport has been awarded a $2.5 million Federal Aviation Administration from the Department of Transportation for the rehabilitation of cross-wind Runway 5-23.
