SE Ohio airports get funds from FAA
(2008-05-21)
(WOUB) - The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded more than $4 million in funding to 18 Ohio airports, including three in Southeast Ohio.

Ohio University's Snyder Field is getting the second highest amount of money in the state, more than half a million dollars.

U.S. Senator George Voinovich announced the funding yesterday.

Voinovich says these funds will be used for runway safety improvements, purchasing land and to construct snow removal equipment buildings.

Port Columbus International Airport is slated for just less than $2 million for expansion, the highest amount of funding in the state from the FAA.

The Vinton County Airport in McArthur and the James A. Rhodes Airport in Jackson are receiving more than $100, 000 a piece.
