Two local airports have received federal grants to make runway improvements.

Ennis-Big Sky Airport has received $9.3 million for runway improvements, which will be completed over the next few years, said airport manager Troy Hunter.

The improvements will include widening, lengthening and decreasing the slope of the runway. Once the project is complete, airlines may land larger aircraft, place fewer weight restrictions on their flights, and take off and land with greater ease in bad weather.
