Graham Announces Additional $460,000 for Barnwell Airport

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced Barnwell County will receive a $462,812 grant for airport improvements at Barnwell Regional Airport.  Last week, Graham announced a $1.06 million grant for the airport.

“South Carolina’s airports are a vital part of our state’s transportation infrastructure and play an integral role in our economy,” said Graham.  “These improvements will help recruit future investment and economic development.”

The funds will be used to rehabilitate a runway and apron, and for a lighting and marking project.

The grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
