A $3.2 million project to expand the Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Hayden gained final approval during the Routt County Board of Commissioners’ meeting Tuesday.

Much of the money — 95% — is coming from federal and state funding sources, according to online county documents. This includes about $3.1 million in federal grants and $162,000 from the Colorado Department of Transportation. The airport will provide the remaining 5%, or $162,000, to finance the project.
