CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Demolition is set to begin on several homes acquired by Yeager Airport after a hillside slip last spring.
The airport says in a news release that a contractor is scheduled to begin the work on Tuesday.
Yeager Airport director Terry Sayre says the Kanawha County commission allocated $180,000 to get the demolition started.
A portion of a manmade emergency overrun area at the end of airport’s runway collapsed on March 12. The landslide took out a church and an unoccupied home, power lines and trees, and caused a creek to flood. No one was injured.
