Feds give $17 million to Telluride Airport

The federal government has allocated $17 million to help complete the second phase of runway renovations at the Telluride Airport (code TEX). This money will be used to improve the runway safety areas by widening the property adjacent to the runway and adding an engineered material arresting system. The hope is that we will soon be able to accommodate the 77 seat turbo prop aircraft right into Telluride. Overall $58 million will be spent on the Airport overhaul.
