A multi-million dollar grant will make it possible to upgrade airline service in Devils Lake.

The Federal Aviation Administration gave the airport nearly eight million dollars to expand runways. The expansion will make it possible for larger planes to land safely in Devils Lake, which could open the door for expanded service down the road. The airport authority is expected to accept a bid for the project next month. Once this project is completed Devils Lake is hoping to provide one of the top regional airports in the country.
