Rick Husband International gets new upgrades

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX -- The Rick Husband International Airport is in for a few million dollars' worth of upgrades this year.

This year, the airport will see a total of $4,173,575 in much-needed upgrades, some vital for safety, and others merely for convenience. The projects include runway lighting, storm drainage, wildlife management, and escalator repair.

Ninety percent of the funding, or $3,756,217, will come from the FAA in the form of a recurring grant, and the city will provide the remaining $417,358 from the Airport Capital Improvement budget.
