State Approves Funding for Lampasas Airport

AUSTIN – At its Aug. 25 meeting, the Texas Transportation Commission approved approximately $210,000 in funding for Lampasas Municipal Airport.

The funds will be used for planned airport improvements, including engineering and design work for pavement improvements.

A project consultant will be selected this summer.

Project costs will be funded through the City of Lampasas and TxDOT’s Aviation Facilities Grant Program, which preserves and improves the state’s general aviation system.

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.
