WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman today announced that Nick Griego and Sons Construction, Incorporated, of Clovis, has been awarded a $6.1 million construction contract to make improvements at Cannon Air Force Base.
The funding will be used to construct a 242,000 square foot AC-130 load apron, which will make it easier to load and unload the aircraft. Work will include a concrete pad over aggregate base, tie downs, grounding, drainage, associated taxiway access, shoulders, pavement markings and lights.
“These improvements will not only help upgrade Cannon Air Force Base’s facilities, it will create local jobs,” Bingaman said. “This is a great investment in the City of Clovis.”
