PECOS - You may not see as many planes soaring over the skies of Pecos during the next few weeks.

Right now, the Municipal Airport is getting a facelift.

TXDOT doled out two million dollars to completely re-pave the runway system.

On Tuesday, airport officials shut down the runways and they won't re-open until Friday.

Until then, they'll only allow helicopters and emergency plane landings.

They say it will probably be another 30 days before all of the runways are marked and fully ready to go.
