Progress Made on Yeager Airport Project

Yeager Airport has a construction project going on that will remove a knoll in the Northgate/Coal Branch Heights area. The Charleston Gazette says work is nearing completion on the first phase of the project that will last for three-years and cost about $16 million. The knoll is in the path of planes leaving from Yeager Airport. Work to remove trees and brush from the area should be done by the end of the week, and then next week the construction committee will review bids for erosion control, storm water management, and other earth work.
