WASHINGTON -

Sen. Kay Hagan announced Wednesday that Raleigh-Durham International Airport has been selected to receive a federal grant to repair aging pavement.

The Democratic senator said the $3.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration will be used to repair existing pavement that has reached the end of its useful life in the airport apron.

The airport apron is the area where planes load, unload, refuel and park for maintenance.

"Raleigh-Durham International Airport is vital to North Carolina's economy, bringing tourists and business travelers to our state, and this grant will ensure the airport can maintain its safety and service," said Hagan. "It is critical that we continue making these valuable investments in our transportation infrastructure."
