Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin announced the grants on Friday. Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport was awarded $5.7 million in a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. 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.
