The Airport Authority learned Thursday that the Federal Aviation Administration has awarded it two grants totaling about $1.3 million for the relocation of Bean Road.
“We’re tickled,” Galligan said. “We’ve been working hard, the previous board worked on it and we’re working on it, so we’re glad that it came about, and we think it’s a big plus to be able to relocate Bean Road.”
The road is being moved to make room for the runway expansion project. Galligan estimated the road relocation should be completed in Fall 2014.
