State Approves Funding for Hale County Airport Improvements
A contract for the project is expected to be awarded this winter. The project is being funded through the Texas Dept. of Transportation’s Aviation Facilities Grant Program, which preserves and improves the state’s general aviation system, including the Hale County Airport.
This year, TxDOT expects to provide approximately $60 million in funding for planning, constructing and maintaining community airports. Approximately 275 community airports in Texas are eligible for funding.
