Construction May Begin Soon at Midland International Air & Spaceport

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

Construction may soon get underway at the Midland International Air & Spaceport.

The Midland Development Spaceport Corporation is receiving $2 million from the Governor's office but they needed to make some budget changes.

Once Governor's office approves the adjustments, the corporation will get the money.

They say the money will go toward infrastructure, including building new roads.

"We submitted the budget previously for some specific items. However, those items were taken care of through Midland Development Corporation and so as a direct result; we wanted to amend our request to be able to use the full $2 million."

There's no word on how long it will take to get the green light from the Governor's office.

Once they do, officials say they'll start looking into construction immediately.
