The project is being funded with $7,744,140 in a federal grant and $588,410 in aviation capital, the city memo said.

In May, Terrence Slaybaugh, Dayton’s aviation director, told this news outlet that the airport will launch at least $35 million in new construction projects this year, work that could last up to 18 months, fueled mostly by federal funds.

The airport hopes to secure about $14 million in Federal Aviation Administration funds for runway and aircraft ramp work this year, Slaybaugh said then. The city is also designing a $4.5 million sanitary sewer project for the airport. Work on the airport’s terminal is also ongoing, he said.
