Dan Brugman, airport development engineer with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), said the project includes a nearly 24,000 square foot addition on the terminal building’s east side. This space will offer an improved baggage handling area to better serve customers. It is the second of a three phase project to upgrade CWA’s terminal building.
