A ten million US dollar taxiway project at Tinian International Airport in the Northern Marianas is now complete.

The Commonwealth Ports Authority, with Governor Benigno Fitial, led the ribbon cutting ceremony for the airport improvement project, which was mostly funded by the Federal Aviation Administration through five grants.

Governor Fitial said this is a substantial project for Tinian and the CNMI.

He said the improvements will help prepare the airport for international direct flights.

The project began in July 2007.
