FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The Fort Wayne- Allen County Airport Authority was awarded a $2.5 million grant from the Department of Transportation.

The cash will be used to rehabilitate the service roads at Fort Wayne International Airport.

Airport Authorities say the 10-year-old roads were meant to be temporary, and were never intended to be used by heavy fuel trucks.

Director of Operations & Facilities Scott Hinderman says, “We have vehicles, fuel trucks, ground-support equipment, crossing active run ways and driving on taxi-ways. This is a safety initiative. We're trying to get those kinds of vehicles off the shared use space with aircrafts.

The project shouldn't have any impact on flights and is expected to be completed by early November.
