New passenger bridges, AC unit planned at Yeager Airport

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Plans are underway for three new passenger bridges at the Charleston airport.

The Saturday Gazette-Mail reports ( ) that a Yeager Airport committee on Friday authorized studies to determine the types of equipment best suited for the new bridges, as well as a new central heating and cooling plant for the passenger terminal. The projects will be financed through federal and state grants.

Two 17-year-old passenger bridges will be replaced and a third added at a cost of about $1.5 million. Airport director Rick Atkinson says they could be completed as early as next summer.

The new climate control system will cost about $2 million and may take until 2015 to complete.
