FLINT, Mich.—Officials announced Wednesday that the Flint Bishop International Airport will receive a multi-million dollar federal Airport Improvement Grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The over $8 million grant will be used to reconstruct the airport’s primary runway 9/27, according to officials. Other improvements that will be made include the addition of runway shoulders and enhancements to the runway’s lighting system.

Work on the project will begin during the winter of 2019 and will continue into construction season in 2020.

Flights at the Bishop Airport will not be affected by the project. The airport’s longest runway will remain open.
