Federal grant will fund new taxiway at airport

Youngstown Warren Regional airport

VIENNA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport will build a new taxiway, thanks to a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The airport is slated to get more than $448,000 from the FAA for the improvements.

The 365-foot taxiway will provide access to aircraft hangers and meet federal design standards.

This comes as the Federal Aviation Administration gave the airport a good yearly review, finding no major problems.

Director of Aviation Dan Dickten said the FAA told them to fix two minor issues: They plan to re-paint faded runway markers in the fall and will remove taxiways with paving problems, after years of concern over poor design.
