International Airport received its fifth installment of federal funding to
support airport expansion efforts, U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville,
said, according to the Gary Post-Tribune. The $5-million grant will go toward
the airport's runway extension project and is part of a $57.8-million
allocation over 10 years. To date, the airport has received more than $25
million from its grant awarded by the Federal Aviation Administration.
