ENHANCING HISTORICAL SITES IN YAP:

YAP IMPROVES AIRPORT LOBBY:
The Yap International Airport has been improved with a lobby extension project funded by the Yap Visitors Bureau through a grant by the US Joint Economic Management Committee. The Visitors Bureau sought to improve the “Gateway Effect” for visitors at the Yap International Airport by utilizing the $475,000 grant to expand the existing lobby and provide shelter for the passenger drop off and pick up area by adding a driveway canopy. The extended structure was designed by the Yap public Works Construction Engineering Management Office and built by the Yap Cooperative Association Construction Company.
