Elba Airport to Receive Federal Grant

A local airport has nearly 1.6 million dollars to help make renovations.

Congressman Terry Everett announced the Elba Airport Authority has received federal grant of over one and a half million dollars from the U.S Department of Transportation.

The authority will use the money to reconstruct the runway and taxiway at Carl Folsom Field.

This money comes after another grant the airport received about a month ago for just over $254,000.
