Investments help state’s airports

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Airport Improvement Program combines federal, state and local resources to help fund improvements to over 98 public-use airports throughout the state primarily owned by counties, cities, towns and villages.

Improvements may include runway construction and reconstruction, land acquisition, navigational aids and lighting.

An important feature of any airport is pavement, and maintaining good pavement condition is paramount. Airports around the state are benefitting from pavement improvement projects.

Airports where taxiway and apron projects are being made using Airport Improvement Program funds include the Sheboygan County Memorial Airport.

Wisconsin’s airport system plays a key role in the state’s transportation network meeting business, passenger, freight and recreational air transportation needs, while enhancing the economic vitality of Wisconsin’s communities. With more than 722 landing facilities – 127 of which are public-use airports, improving infrastructure and making safety improvements are top priorities.

The state’s commitment to high-quality aviation facilities is evident. In 2014, more than $114 million in federal and state funds supported more than 80 airport improvement projects at more than 60 airports around Wisconsin.
