Redmond Airport managers are asking for lottery funds to help fund improvements at the airport.  The total price tag is $8.5 million for a general aviation ramp and two taxiways.  The city has to come up with 10%  and the FAA covers the rest.  Mayor George Endicott is hopeful the state will come through with $350,000 to help with a chunk of the cost.  "Bend talked about bumps in their taxiways.  We have the same problem.  Most of these were built in World War 2, or post WW II so they're getting pretty long in the tooth, and need re-building. They’re full of cracks and bumps, and all that.  They're worn out.  They need to replace them.”  KBND: “Is that really dangerous more of a hassle or a safety issue?”  Endicott: “Probably more of a hassle.  You hope that a bolt doesn't fall out when you go over a bump, you know." Other Central Oregon airports are asking for "Connect Oregon" lottery funds; and in Madras, a railroad project is part of the request.  The Oregon Lottery has $40 million in funds to give out to local transportation projects, and an estimated $4 million should come to Central Oregon.
