FAA gives OK on Belen airport runway

BELEN, N.M. (KRQE) – A much needed economic boost is hitting Valencia County.

Federal officials say the Alexander Municipal Airport in Belen can build a new runway.

That will start the bidding process for construction on the $4 million project.

The airport’s manager says the runway is needed because the current one can’t be used during high winds.
