Who, What, When, Where

Approximately $385,290 for Fort Worth Meacham International Airport was approved by the Texas Transportation Commission at its June meeting.

The funds will be used for planned airport improvements, which include:

  • Engineering/design for pavement improvements
  • A project consultant will begin design work this summer.
  • Project costs will be funded through the city of Fort Worth 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.
