Charlottesville, Danville airports among 8 grant recipients

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Eight Virginia airports are set to receive more than $13 million in federal grant money for infrastructure improvements.

U.S. Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine made the announcement late last week.

The recipient of the most grant money is the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport, which will receive about $3.7 million to expand an apron, the area where aircraft are parked.

The Danville Regional Airport will get about $3.6 million for the same purpose.

The other recipients are: the Culpeper Regional Airport, the Farmville Regional Airport, the Middle Peninsula Regional Airport, the Accomack County Airport, the New Kent County Airport and the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport.

This funding was granted through a Federal Aviation Administration program that provides grants for public-use airports considered significant to national air transportation.
