The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has sanctioned $7.2m in federal stimulus funds for airfield safety enhancements at Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) in California, US.

The move is part of a long-term proposal to establish a new taxiway at the airport, which will help develop corporate and general aviation activities at west side of the airport.

The initial phase of the taxiway W expansion will begin on 8 September on the airfield’s west side. The project aims to enhance safety at the airport and will generate over 80 construction jobs for local residents.

Project work includes adding new concrete pavement to the taxiway, removing old pavement, and erecting airfield lighting and signage.

Due to construction, the airport’s runway 30 left will be closed for two weeks and its runway 11/29 will be closed until the project is completed in early 2010.

The project is expected to cost $80m, with funds likely to come from FAA’s future AIP grants.
