Taylor Municipal Airport Recipient of $2.9 Million TxDOT Grant
TAYLOR, Texas – The Taylor Municipal Airport has been awarded a Texas Department of Transportation airport improvement grant, acting on behalf of the Federal Aviation Administration, in the amount of $2,918,200 to fund pavement and hangar improvements.
"I am honored to help provide this important funding to the Taylor Municipal Airport," said U.S. Rep. John R. Carter, Texas District 31. "This grant will be a great boost to the Taylor economy, and help to ensure that the Taylor Municipal Airport continues to serve our community at the highest standard of excellence."
Project improvements provided by this grant will include rehabilitating runways, taxiways and adding 12 unit T-hangars which will help to narrow down the waiting list for hangar space.
“We are pleased to have been selected as recipients of this grant which will enable us to properly maintain and improve our runway and taxiway pavement areas,” said David Cornelius, Taylor Airport Manager. “It will also provide substantial assistance in the construction of a new 12 unit T-hangar and will contribute to upgraded security through the installation of perimeter fencing.”
The City of Taylor has established a long-range, 10-year financial plan for the airport in order to enhance its sustainability and efficiency for many years to come. These initial improvements are a part of the overall plan for more than $8 million worth of capital improvements as outlined in the City’s 5-year Community Investment Plan (CIP).
Jesse Ancira, Jr., Mayor of Taylor, said, “We are grateful to our partners at the Texas Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration for this grant funding that will provide for much needed improvements to the Taylor Municipal Airport and we look forward to the completion of these projects.”
The Taylor Municipal Airport is one of 294 public use airports in Texas and manages more than 1000 operations per month. In 2012, it was estimated that the airport’s impact on the Taylor economy exceeded $4 million annually.
