FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Crews have begun rehabilitating taxiway C at the Fort Wayne International Airport. The airport says the project will focus on replacing concrete panels and repairing others, sealing joints and repairing cracks.
The work is being funded by a Federal Airport Improvement Grant from the Federal Aviation Administration for more than $4.2 million and was fully funded due to the CARES Act.
“The Taxiway C rehabilitation project will allow for FWA’s airfield to see needed improvements that will benefit all users of the airfield,” said Scott Hinderman, executive director of airports. “We were thrilled to receive the full funding for this project from the FAA, and to be able to move forward with one of the smaller sequences yet this year. ”
The airport says the project is estimated to take more than 200 days to complete, with final work to be done in the spring. The work will not affect the airport’s longest runway, and is not expected to hinder passengers.
