    The money will allow SJC to better secure its 8,600-feet of perimeter, including raising the fence to 10-feet-high and topping it with razor wire.

    The feds are moving to plug the security gaps at San Jose's international airport.

    The Federal Aviation Administration is awarding Mineta San José International Airport a grant of $3.4 million.

    The airport has seen several incidents since last year, when a teenager stowed away in an airplane wheel well.

    The money will allow SJC to better secure its 8,600-feet of perimeter, including raising the fence to 10-feet-high and topping it with razor wire.

    There will also be unspecified high-tech improvements.

    The new fence should be finished by May 2016.
