With Governor Walker proclaiming tomorrow the start
of Aviation week.
the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is looking
at improving its airports.
The idea is part of Wisconsin's State Airport System
It's a process where the department evaluates the
and future goals of the state's airport systems.
The data collected from the research will help with
safety improvements and redevelopment projects.
If a local airport needs improving.
the county or city it's in will have to share some
of the costs with the state.
The state pays a share of the capital development
but it's generally something in the order of 5 percent
of an airport development project when that project
is funded by federal funds.
If you would like more information on Wisconsin's
Airport System Plan go w-w-w.
