Airports in Spokane and Walla Walla received federal grants for improvements to runways, taxiways and lighting, the Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday.

The FAA awarded $290.6 million in airport infrastructure grants to 105 airports across the nation as part of the infrastructure improvement program.

Airports are entitled to a certain amount of infrastructure funding annually, based on passenger volumes. The FAA also provides discretionary grants for high-priority airport projects.
