(WDAZ-TV) - Devils Lake is getting a $1.1 million federal grant to extend the main runway at the city airport.

Senators Kent Conrad and John Hoeven and Representative Rick Berg say the runway extension will address concerns that air carriers have about service into Devils Lake.

“Consistent and reliable air service is critical to the economic viability of any community. That is particularly true in North Dakota, where our booming economy demands regular, access to air service,” they said in a news release. “These resources will go a long way to improving the infrastructure at the Devils Lake Airport.”

The grant is through the federal Transportation Department.
