FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Four rural Kentucky airports will share more than $3.5 million in federal grants that will cover most of the costs for improvement projects.
State officials say the grant recipients are the Breckinridge County Airport at Hardinsburg, the Mayfield-Graves County Airport, the Cynthiana-Harrison County Airport and the Stanton-Powell County Airport. The grants are from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
The Breckinridge County Airport will receive a $3.2 million federal award for a project that includes lengthening the runway.
The Mayfield-Graves County Airport will get $215,916 for runway and pavement rehabilitation for the taxiway.
The airport in Harrison County will use a $175,000 grant for runway repairs.
In Powell County, a $163,568 grant will be used for an environmental analysis.
The state will help cover a portion of all four projects.
