BEAVER - The Raleigh County Airport will receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant money in hopes of improving its longevity and flying experience.
Congressman Nick Rahall announced that $150,000 will be made available through the Federal Aviation Administration. The money will be used to resurface the access road outside of the airport and purchase security cameras for the terminal.
Rahall said the improvements are key to bolstering the economy and creating jobs.
