Graham Announces a $3.7 Million Grant for Myrtle Beach International Airport

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the Myrtle Beach International Airport has been awarded a $3.7 million grant for airport improvements. The funds will be used to acquire land for development, purchase a handicap passenger lift device, modify the terminal building, and rehabilitate the taxiway. “Airport improvements help improve passenger safety and increase the state’s ability to accommodate travel,” said Graham. “It will not only help tourism, but also make South Carolina more attractive for business investment and economic development.” The Myrtle Beach International Airport is located in the 1st Congressional District represented by Henry Brown. The grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation. ####
