$7.7 million building approved for Dane County Regional Airport-Truax Field (KMSN), Madison, Wisconsin

A $7.7 million upgrade to house snow removal equipment is coming to the Dane County Regional Airport.

 Gov. Scott Walker approved spending $7,721,544 for the new facility, announced in a news release on Friday.

Construction is expected to begin in January 2013 and should be completed by November 2013.

"The current facility is outdated and does not allow for the proper storage and maintenance of the equipment," said David Montesinos, airport development engineer with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Funding for the facility is mostly from the Federal Aviation Administration, with a little over $1 million coming from Dane County and $500,000 from the state.
