PLAINVIEW—The Texas Transportation Commission approved approximately $500,000 for the Hale County Airport during their regular scheduled February meeting. The funds will be used as reimbursement for the acquisition of a hangar.

The project is being funded through the city of Plainview, Hale County and the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) 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.

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.

 The Texas Department of Transportation is responsible for maintaining 80,000 miles of road and for supporting aviation, rail, and public transportation across the state. Through collaboration and leadership, we deliver a safe, reliable, and integrated transportation system that enables the movement of people and goods.  Find out more at TxDOT.gov. “Like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
