ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Almost $14 million is on the way to New Mexico to be used for maintenance projects at 16 airports around the state.
U.S. Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich and U.S. Reps. Ben Ray Luján, Deb Haaland and Xochitl Torres Small announced Friday that the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration has awarded $13,810,189 in funding for the projects.
The money will support critical rehabilitation, construction and maintenance projects to repair and improve local airports across the state.
The largest projects are in Doña Ana County, the Four Corners region and in Lea County.
