Hereford Airport Upgrades

A major upgrade is coming to the Hereford Municipal Airport.

They’re getting a new automated weather observation system, with up-to-date weather information going straight to pilots.

TxDOT is working with airports throughout Texas by providing funding for these projects.

Hereford Airport officials say the upgrades are vital because they provide jobs, they help the local economy, they are just such a big economic driver.

They go on to say the improvements are long overdue, and the current system needs to be updated.

Parts to keep the current system working are harder to find when they need to be replaced.

The project will cost $150,000 for the updated weather system, which TxDOT and local airport revenue will cover.
