FORT WAYNE

The Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority has received a boost for a more than $20 million runway improvement project. The $2.1 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration will help pay for renovations to Fort Wayne International Airport's second-largest runway.

Director of Operations and Facilities Joe Marana says "receiving this grant means we can continue into phase 2 of this large project to continue to provide a safe and efficient facility for all of our customers."

Phase one is underway and the next phase of the work is slated to start in August.

Last year, federal dollars covered nearly all of the renovations to FWA's primary runway. That project cost more than $14 million. Kentucky-based The Harper Co. has partnered with the authority on both projects.

Officials say flights will not be affected. In 2015, FWA served nearly 716,000 passengers.
