Governor Scott Walker today announced a $3,170,053 project for airfield improvements and planning services at the Chippewa Valley Regional Airport.
Gayle Stearn, airport development engineer with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), said the project includes the removal of Taxiway D and realignment of Taxiway A to improve safety and meet federal requirements. In addition, the north general aviation ramp and terminal ramp will be rehabilitated to extend pavement life. Airfield pavement markings will also be repainted for greater pilot visibility. And the airport’s wildlife hazard assessment and management plan will be analyzed and updated where needed.
The project is expected to begin this fall and should be completed by fall 2013.
