WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The end to a national shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration means that more than 75,000 FAA and construction workers can get back to work.

The FAA can again collect the ticket tax used to fund airport projects.

At Wilmington International Airport plans to seek grants for two airfield asphalt improvement projects. Those projects will cost between $5 and $7 million.

Airport Deputy Director Julie Wilsey is excited about the reopening.

“We at ILM are relieved, because it is critical that the FAA immediately start to write grants for airport projects,” Wilsey said.

Congressional leaders announced a deal this afternoon ending a two-week stalemate over FAA funding.
