LITTLE ROCK — The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded a $5.9 million grant to the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, members of the state’s congressional delegation said Thursday.


Sens. John Boozman and Tom Cotton, both R-Ark., and Rep. French Hill, R-Little Rock, said in a joint news release the money will fund rehabilitation of the taxiway at Adams Field.


The project will be the second phase of a plan to improve 2,500 feet of existing taxiway pavement that has reached the end of its useful life, the lawmakers said.
