JACKSON, Ohio (WSAZ) -- More than half a million dollars in federal funds has been awarded to the James A. Rhodes Airport in Jackson to build a terminal and make repairs to the apron.

That information comes from the office of U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio.

The $579,733 from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will be used to repair about 26,250 square yards of apron pavement, as well as build a terminal.

“This is great news for Jackson County,” Brown said in a prepared news release. “These improvements will enhance the safety and capacity of James A. Rhodes Airport. These federal dollars will go a long way in sustaining travel in and out of the airport for area residents and businesses.”

James A. Rhodes Airport is managed by the Jackson County Airport Authority.
