SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Four New Mexico airports are receiving federal funds to improve runways, including installing perimeter fences and taxiway markings.

Airports in Carlsbad, Clovis, Los Alamos and Roswell will share in $6.41 million.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Tom Udall says the investment will improve safety and help provide local jobs.

The Los Alamos airport will receive $3.4 million to rehabilitate its runway, while the Clovis Municipal Airport is getting $2 million to help bring its runway length up to Federal Aviation Administration standards.

Carlsbad's airport will receive about $211,000 and the Roswell International Air Center will get $767,000.

The money comes through the FAA.
