Perryton Ochiltree County Airport Gets Funding for Re-paving

The Perryton Ochiltree County Airport is getting some help on improvements thanks to the Texas Department of Transportation.

About $80 thousand has been allocated for the airport which plans to use the money to engineer and design pavement improvements, potentially on the runway.

The money is a collaboration between Ochiltree County, Perryton and the TxDOT'S Aviation Facilities Grant Program.

The project's contract is expected to be awarded later in the fall.
