Airport finishes runway project

KILN, Miss. - About $5 million worth of improvements are finished at Stennis International Airport in Hancock County. The 8,500-foot grooved and lighted runway is an essential component to attracting new companies to the airpark, currently home to 16 companies and nearly 400 employees. Stennis Airport also serves as a military training facility, relying on both the runway as well as Stennis Space Center’s acoustical buffer zone. The $4.85 million in funding came from the Federal Aviation Administration's airport improvement program. (Source: WLOX-TV, 08/06/18)
