Gov. Scott Walker approves improvement project at La Crosse Regional Airport (KLSE), Wisconsin

Gov. Scott Walker on Oct. 22 announced $2,628,445 in funding to complete the final phase of the terminal building rehabilitation at La Crosse Regional Airport.

Wendy Hottenstein, project manager with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), said the project will rehabilitate the passenger boarding bridges for the airport terminal building.

 Improvements will allow the existing bridges to be used for the new second floor gates that were previously located on the first floor.

Pre-conditioned air units will also be installed to enhance ventilation and passenger comfort on the boarding bridges.

The funding breakdown is as follows:

State $207,222;
City of La Crosse $221,223;
Federal Aviation Administration $2,200,000.

The project is set to begin this fall and should be complete by July 2016.

La Crosse Regional 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.
