Infrastructure Law Invests in Wisconsin’s Airports

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin’s airports are flying high with federal funds thanks to President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

In Wisconsin, the following commercial airports are expected to receive funding during the first year of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law:

  • Appleton International Airport: $3,089,895
  • Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee: $1,605,349
  • Chippewa Valley Regional Airport in Eau Claire: $1,015,736
  • Dane County Regional Airport-Truax Field in Madison: $5,023,687
  • General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee: $8,962,017
  • Green Bay-Austin Straubel International Airport: $2,810,945
  • La Crosse Regional Airport: $1,359,313
  • Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport: $1,017,639

An additional 78 airfields and airports across the state will also see federal funds in 2022. See a complete list of Wisconsin airports that will benefit from the infrastructure law here
