Three area airports received funding from the FAA on Tuesday to aid them in various projects to update their infrastructure.

The Austin Municipal Airport received approximately $250,000 in funding to acquire an easement for approaches and rebuild perimeter fencing.  The Dodge Center Airport received approximately $500,000 to rebuild a taxi lane, and the Rochester International Airport received nearly $10M to acquire aircraft rescue and fire fighting safety equipment, also to conduct airport related environmental assessment/plan/study and to reconstruct a runway.  The funds will also help the airport update its master plan or study.
