The Delta County Airport is pleased to announce they will soon have a boarding ramp. During Tuesdayâ??s board meeting, the county authorized its self to front the money for the ramp.
The airport will reimburse the county next year. They will use federal money the airport received for having over 10,000 enplanements this past year. The ramp will protect guests and provide better handicap access to the planes.
â??Having this boarding ramp and having it covered and people not walking out in the elements, that wheelchair just gets pushed right up to the door,â?? said airport manager Kelly Smith. â??It makes it so much easier.â??
The ramp will cost about $300,000 and is expected to be completed late October.
