The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded the Owensboro-Daviess County Airport one million dollars to fund the completion of two major projects.  The grant will cover 90 percent of the overall cost of relocating a beacon to improve visibility and to the final phase of terminal building improvements.

The state Department of Aviation and the county airport board will each pay 5 percent of the remaining cost.  In announcing the grant, Governor Steve Beshear says the money will help the airport continue to provide vital connections and keep the Commonwealth economically competitive.
