U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman today announced that the Moriarty Airport will receive a $2.69 million grant to begin construction of a new runway.
The grant comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration and will be used to help the airport fund the first phase of construction of a new crosswind runway to provide adequate wind coverage.
"Airports are important to a community's economic success, especially in rural part of our state. This funding is a very significant investment in Moriarty," Bingaman
