Fond du Lac County Airport (KFLD) to get $1.4 million upgrade; Federal funds will help pay for work

Federal, state and local sources will fund new construction at the Fond du Lac County Airport starting in July.

Gov. Scott Walker’s office announced in a news release Monday that the Federal Aviation Administration, along with state and local backers will pledge a combined $1,441,785 for airport construction.

The project includes new security gates, a cul-de-sac and revamped lanes for taxis.

The FAA will pledge $1,298,037 and the state of Wisconsin will pitch in another $71,874 toward the project.

Calls to Fond du Lac County and state officials regarding the project were not returned by deadline Monday.

The project is expected to begin in July and be completed this fall.

Fond du Lac County Airport is one of 98 facilities included in the Wisconsin State Airport System Plan, a long-term blueprint for state airport upgrades.

Airport improvement projects are administered through the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Aeronautics.
