Dallas/Fort Worth Airport received $23 million in grants from the Federal Aviation Administration on Wednesday to be used on runway projects.

The airport said a $14 million grant will be used to rehabilitate Taxiway L which is expected to be completed in 2018. A $9 million grant will be used to rehabilitate runway 17R/35L and replace runway lighting on runway 18L/36R and should be finished late next year.

“We are pleased to receive these funds from our partners at the FAA in order to maintain the airfield infrastructure in prime condition here at DFW Airport,” airport chief executive Sean Donohue said.

The grants cover about 75 percent of each project’s costs.
