Texas approves $1.1 million in funding for the Post-Garza County Airport

During its August meeting, the Texas Transportation Commission approved approximately $1.1 million to make improvements to the Post-Garza County Airport. The funds will be used for planned airport enhancements that include electrical improvements at the facility.

A project bid will be completed this summer.

The project is being funded through the city of Post, Garza County and TxDOT's Aviation Facilities Grant Program, which preserves and improves the state's general aviation system, including the Post-Garza 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. 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.
