Some new safety improvements are on the way for Tri-State Airport in Huntington. That's because the airport is set to receive a $7 million dollar grant!
The grant will provide funding to improve the runway safety area by extending Tri-State's two runways by 500 feet. The extension will bring Tri-State up to date with the latest federal aviation standards.
A recent study found Tri-State has contributed more than $50 million dollars to the local economy.
