Bingaman: Santa Fe Airport Awarded $3.21 Million Grant

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman today announced that Santa Fe Airport will receive a $3.21 million grant to purchase equipment and make improvements at the airport.

The grant comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration and will be used to help the airport acquire a power sweeper to remove foreign object debris from the airfield, to rehabilitate taxiway pavement and to fund the design for the taxiway construction that will eliminate the need for aircraft to back-taxi on the runway.

"This funding will help the Santa Fe Municipal Airport make the upgrades and improvements it needs to accommodate the increase in traffic the airport has seen in the past couple of years," Bingaman said.
