Desert Dispatch

SAN BERNARDINO — Last week the county Board of Supervisors approved more than $3.65 million in funds to upgrade infrastructure at the Barstow-Daggett airport, bringing the facility in line with Federal Aviation Administration standards.

With the construction funds, a large portion of which is provided through FAA grants, the airport’s taxiway will be extended and the facility’s cables and runway lights will be upgraded. The airport’s electrical system was installed in the mid-1940s, according to a press release from the county.
