Feds provide more than $750,000 for Myrtle Beach runway project


MYRTLE BECAH, South Carolina — The federal government has given more than $750,000 for the runway rehabilitation project at the Myrtle Beach International Airport.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports ( ) that bids for the $20 million project came in a bit higher than expected and the money awarded Thursday will make up the shortfall. The federal government is paying about 90 percent of the cost.

The repaving will take place from October through late November. Then lighting will be replaced and the pavement grooved with work wrapping up at the end of March.

It's one of a number of major projects at the airport in recent years. The others include completion of a $118 million terminal and a $2 million parking lot.
