New road finished giving better access to Raleigh County airport

Posted: Updated:

A special ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday for a new access road in Raleigh County.

"Commerce Drive" will give an additional way out of the Industrial complex on Airport Road in Beaver in case of a serious accident or some other disaster. Several dignitaries were on hand for the event.

"This road compliments that opportunity to have an alternate route of option to come into the airport," Raleigh County airport manager Tom Cochran said.

Cochran told 59News it also benefits the employees by cutting their travel time into the Industrial Park in half.
