  • In December, Piedmont Triad International Airport learned it would receive more than $5 million in a grant from the FAA. 
  • That same program delivered more than $91.5 million to airports across North Carolina, including $295,000 each for Davidson Airport in Lexington, Wilkes County Airport in North Wilkesboro and Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem; $159,000 to Asheboro Regional, Elkin Municipal Mount Airy/Surry Airport and Rockingham County NC Shiloh; and $110,000 for Montgomery County Airport.
  • In late January, the Appalachian Development Highway System, which touches on the mountainous parts of the Triad, was given $16.1 million to complete its portion of the 3,090-mile linked system across the region.
