Blackwell Field Airport Funding

US Senator Richard Shelby had some good news for Ozark yesterday.

Blackwell Field Airport will soon get some much needed funding.

Shelby announced that the US Department of Transportation will be releasing more than one million dollars to the airfield.

The money will be used for taxiway construction.

Shelby says these funds will help bring the airport's taxiway up to standards to accommodate increased traffic flow at Blackwell Field Airport.
