Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle announced today a $4 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act award to extend a taxiway at the Dane County Regional Airport.
The award will create an undisclosed number of jobs for local residents, invest in the long-term economic growth of the region, and enhance travel safety.
The $4 million award will create jobs for landscapers, pavers, asphalt plant workers, quarry workers, subcontractors, truck drivers, flagmen, engineers, foremen, laborers, and others.
The construction will build a full-length parallel taxiway that will allow aircraft and ground service vehicles to maneuver without blocking an active runway.
The project is expected to begin construction in June.Airport Expansion to Create Jobs by Harrison Barnes
