Dothan airport project could aid future expansion

DOTHAN, Ga. (AP) — A couple counties and a city in Alabama are partnering with the state to fix a major drainage issue at the Dothan Regional Airport that could help with future expansion.

The Dothan Eagle ( ) reports that Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce President Matt Parker says the project will cost about $1.2 million. Houston and Dale County along with the city of Dothan are partnering with the state.

Most of the money will be provided by the state. Houston and Dale counties will supply most of the labor. The city of Dothan will be able to help with some federal matching funds.

Parker says the project involves moving more than 100,000 cubic yards of dirt.

The project must be completed by February.
