    Two San Diego County airports were among those that received millions in federal grants for planned upgrades. 

    Oceanside's Bob Maxwell Memorial Airfield received $1.6 million for runway and taxiway improvements.

    The San Diego International Airport received close to $13 million. Of the money, $3.9 million will go toward improving taxiways. The rest of the grant, $9 million, is listed as discretionary. 

    Also in Southern California, Imperial County is getting nearly $278,000 to improve its airport's apron and taxiway. 

    The U.S. Department of Transportation announced the grants Monday. A total of 327 airport will receive funding.
