Governor Evers approves $82,000 for Dodge County Airport project

Governor Tony Evers has approved funding totaling $82,000 which will be used to acquire an aviation easement at the Dodge County Airport, in Juneau, to help protect the airport’s airspace. According to Lucas Ward, P.E., airport development engineer with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Bureau of Aeronautics, the easement allows for the trimming and clearing of trees which are presently an obstruction to the runways. The State and County will both contribute $4100 each, with the FAA contributing $73,800. The project is currently scheduled to be completed by the end of April.
