Huntington’s Tri-State Airport Gets Federal Funding

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — The Tri-State Airport near Huntington will receive $1.3 million in funding from the Federal Aviation Administration for improvements.

U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia announced the funding in a news release Friday for improvements to the area where aircraft are parked, loaded, refueled, or boarded.

It's part of an ongoing five-year capital improvement plan at the airport. Taxiway resurfacing and lighting, terminal office remodeling, navigational system upgrades, and airport heating and cooling improvements were previously completed.
