GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — Grand Forks International Airport is planning a $2.3 million expansion, to add more parking and expand a FedEx sorting facility.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that the airport plans to fund the project through bonds, using the city's bonding authority. It could mean higher parking fees. The City Council is scheduled to vote on the proposal Monday.

Airport Executive Director Patrick Dame says passenger traffic at the airport has grown by about 53 percent since 2008. He expects 150,000 passengers this year.

A new $21 million terminal opened at the airport in August 2011.
