MONROE, La.- Monroe Regional Airport will soon have a resurfaced runway and taxiway to complement its new terminal.

The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded $4.2 million to rehabilitate the airport's secondary runway and primary taxiway. The state will provide a 5 percent match to the grant.

Mayor Jamie Mayo says the project may not be as flashy as the $36 million terminal scheduled to open in October, but is just as important.

Airport manager Cleve Norrell says work on the runway and taxiway should begin within 45 days and be complete sometime early next year.
