AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Transportation presented the Big Spring – McMahon Wrinkle Airport with the 2016 RAMP (Routine Airport Maintenance Program) award for 20 years of continuous participation in the aviation program.
This year is also the 20th anniversary of the RAMP. The program was designed to assist communities with airport maintenance programs by offering state financial assistance. State funds are used to match local funds in a 50/50 split with a $10,000 maximum in state funds per airport per year.
