WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) announced today that the Eunice Airport and Southland Field in Sulphur, LA will receive over $1.6 million from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for infrastructure improvements.
- Eunice Airport will receive $570,000 to fill joints and perform sealing work on 5,000 feet of the existing runway surface.
- Southland Field will receive $1,089,200 to expand the airport apron to 9,000 square yards.
Congressman Higgins issued the following statement:
“Infrastructure investments like these ensure that our airports can continue to serve local industry. Southland Field, in particular, was badly damaged during Hurricane Laura.
