Parking Expansion Project - Update


Parking ramp construction is moving along quickly and will continue throughout the summer with an anticipated completion date of late fall. The project impacts covered spaces in the parking ramp and increases use of the Surface Lot - especially on Monday and Tuesday travel days. A shuttle bus will run between the economy lot and the terminal every 10 to 15 minutes. For up-to-date information on available parking please observe Boulevard signs as well as join us on Twitter @MSN_Airport.

MSN Begins Runway
Lighting Project

Temporary Flight Pattern Change


Dane County Regional Airport is completing a construction project to improve runway lighting and navigational aids which has closed the primary (North/South) runway. All arrivals and departures are now using secondary runways, changing overhead aircraft traffic patterns. The project, part of a two-year runway rehabilitation, will upgrade airfield lighting with new, energy-efficient LED lighting and navigational aids which will improve the ability of aircraft to land during all types of inclement weather. Airport operations and safety will not be impacted.  The runway is expected to re-open by September 1st.  Learn more...
