Lamesa Municipal Airport to receive $1.6 million in state funding

Lamesa Municipal Airport
The Texas Transportation Commission approved approximately $1.6 million for planned improvements to the Lamesa Municipal Airport during their monthly meeting held on August 30. The funds will be used for electrical and pavement enhancements to the airport facility.

A call for project bids will be conducted this summer.

The project is being funded through city of Lamesa, Dawson County and the TxDOT's Aviation Facilities Grant Program, which preserves and improves the state's general aviation system, including the Lamesa Municipal 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. Arrivals and departures from community airports account for more than three million flight hours per year and provide aircraft facilities for agricultural, medical, business and commuter use.
