The grant, awarded by the Federal Aviation Administration in the amount of $1,678,722, has been awarded to the Avoyelles Parish Airport Authority. The project will fund the construction to mill and overlay 3,800 feet of runway.


“Our municipal and regional airports play a vital role in the economic health of our local communities. I’m glad to see these federal dollars heading to Marksville so that its runway can continue to be sound for years to come,” Dr. Abraham said.
