Approximately $200,000 for Hall-Miller Municipal Airport was approved by the Texas Transportation Commission at its April meeting.
The funds will be used for planned airport improvements, which includes:
Install automatic weather observing system
A project contract will be executed this spring.
Project costs will be funded through the city of Atlanta 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.
