BECKLEY, W.Va. – Three airports in Southern West Virginia have been awarded federal grants to improve airfield infrastructure.

U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall says Greenbrier Valley Airport will receive $1 million to pay for the design of reconstructing apron pavement and building a new taxi lane. The airport also will use the funding to acquire snow removal equipment.

Logan County Airport will receive $150,000 to acquire a new runway visual guidance system.

The Federal Aviation Administration also awarded nearly $130,000 to Summersville Airport to remove trees and obstructions from one of its runway approaches and transitional surfaces.
