The New Orleans Aviation Board has received a $4 Million Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Discretionary Grant for its North Perimeter Road Improvements project.

The North Perimeter Road Improvement is a critical safety enhancement project that will help reduce the chance of a runway incursion by providing a paved access roadway around the airfield. The project will widen the perimeter road and upgrade the surface from gravel to concrete, an important safety enhancement for fuel trucks and fire response. Bids for the construction of the North Perimeter Road are due on July 13.

"We are pleased with the FAA’s response to our requests and their continued support of the modernization of our facilities at Armstrong,” stated Iftikhar Ahmad, Director of Aviation at Armstrong International Airport.
