New Mexico airports to get nearly $14M in federal funds

June 10, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico’s airports will get millions of dollars in federal aid for maintenance and other projects.

The Albuquerque Journal reported Monday that the Federal Aviation Administration has awarded more than $13 million in funding to be used at 16 airports in the state.

New Mexico’s congressional delegation including U.S. Sen. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich made the announcement Friday.

The funds will help with critical improvements, construction and other repairs.

Officials say the largest projects in need are in Dona Ana County, Lea County and the Four Corners region.

Dona Ana County International Jetport in Santa Teresa will get nearly $5 million to rebuild part of an existing area.

Heinrich says the money will help modernize the state’s smaller airports.
