Governor Walker approves improvement project at Clintonville Municipal Airport
June 10, 2014
Governor Scott Walker today announced $1,416,146 in funding for runway reconstruction at the Clintonville Municipal Airport.
Michael Gabor, airport engineering specialist with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), said the project will reconstruct the airport’s 30-year-old crosswind runway pavement and narrow it to meet Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards. The reclaimed asphalt from the narrowing of the runway will be used to build a 500-foot extension at the southeast end of the runway. This extension will bring the runway to 3,811 feet in length – the FAA recommended length.
- State = $60,009
- City of Clintonville = $60,010
- Federal Aviation Administration = $1,296,127
The project is expected to begin this summer and be completed by summer’s end.
Clintonville Municipal Airport is one of 98 facilities included in the Wisconsin State Airport System Plan, which makes it eligible for state and federal funding. Airport improvement projects are administered through WisDOT’s Bureau of Aeronautics.
