Berlin airport to get makeover with stimulus money (Associated Press)

BERLIN, Vt. (AP) -- The runways at the Edward F. Knapp State Airport in Berlin are going to be reconfigured courtesy of federal stimulus money.

U.S. Secretary of Transportavion Ray LaHood arrived at the airport on Friday and announced the $6.2 million federal grant, which is expected to create 54 jobs.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders says the grant is another example of how the economic stimulus package is rebuilding the nation's infrastructure and creating millions of good-paying jobs.

The grant will be used to reconfigure a runway to allow the construction of a full parallel taxiway and modify the terminal apron.
