QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - The Quincy airport in western Illinois is building a new taxiway to meet updated safety and design standards.

The Democrat said those kinds of infrastructure investments will boost the economy of western Illinois by supporting the region’s businesses and helping attract new ones.
