EKY airport one step closer to commercial air service

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Construction is beginning that will bring one Eastern Kentucky airport closer to having commercial air service.

Officials have been pushing to get commercial air service at the Pikeville-Pike County Airport, but the airport needs a longer taxiway.

Now they have a more than $3.3 million dollar grant from the Federal Aviation Administration which will be used to extend the taxiway.

Construction should be done by early next year.
