FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - Improvements will soon get underway at a pair of community airports in Fort Worth.

At its September meeting, the Texas Transportation Commission approved nearly $15 million for pavement improvements at Meacham and Spinks airports in Fort Worth.

Meacham will receive $9.2 million, while Spinks will get $5.6 million.

The work will get underway later this fall.

Statewide, about 275 community airports are eligible for funding through TxDOT's Aviation Facilities Grand Program, which expects to dole out about $60 million this year.
