North Dakota's Land Board is awarding $18 million in grants to fund airport and infrastructure improvement projects in the state's oil patch.....

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Land Board is awarding $18 million in grants to fund airport and infrastructure improvement projects in the state's oil patch.  Governor Jack Dalrymple announced there grants Wednesday.
 
     Dalrymple's office says $9.1 million will go to infrastructure improvement in 13 western North Dakota cities.  Another $8.9 million will go to airport improvement and expansion projects in Williston, Watford City, Crosby, New Town, Bowman and Mohall.
 
     The Land Board's grants to North Dakota airports are in addition to the more than $18 million in federal grants the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded state airports in May and June.
 
     The infrastructures of western North Dakota's towns have struggled to keep up with sharp population growth in recent years brought on by the oil boom.
