The recently completed reconstruction of Taxiway E and the rehabilitation of Runway 14/32 significantly improved the safety, preservation and efficiency of AEX airport infrastructure.  Funded primarily by FAA funds the Louisiana Aviation Trust Fund provided the significant match to capture the federal dollars that made these projects possible.  Hundreds of design and construction jobs were created during these projects that put Louisiana people to work building a better future.  With proper care, these improvements will last for decades.
