Parking Expansion Project - Update

Reduced Ramp Parking Space Availability Beginning May 5th


This project will impact available covered parking spaces in the parking ramp.  Parking spaces in the ramp and surface lot will fill quickly each day, so plan to arrive early to find parking.  A shuttle bus will run between the economy lot and the terminal every 10 to 15 minutes. 


Please allow extra time in your travel plans due to traffic pattern changes and ramp-level closures. There will be signs to direct you to open and available parking areas.  For additional information click here.

Airport Lost & Found

If you lose an item, here are a few ways to track it down: 

  1. Return to the area in which you lost the item and ask an airport employee if it has been turned in.

  3. Stop at the Airport Administration office on the second floor between gate 8 and gate 9. Airport Administration hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.

  5. If you have already left the airport, call the airport's lost and found (608-661-4809) and leave a message including your full name, phone number, and a description of the item.

If you left an item at the TSA checkpoint, call 608-395-6015.


If an item was left on a plane, contact that airline.


Lost and found is not for baggage incidents.  To file a claim for baggage or a lost or damaged bag, go directly to your airline's website.

Behind The Scenes:
Airport Operations


Airport Operations staff are always working hard to make sure that passengers and pilots have a safe and pleasant experience traveling. Airport Operations staff wear many hats and could have many other job titles such as event coordinator, safety inspector, regulation enforcer, emergency dispatcher, wildlife specialist, meteorologist, communications expert, contingency planner, security trainer, and more. They respond to matters like runway snow removal, airplanes with flat tires, lost and found, airline gate conflicts, runway and navigational aid inspections, and maintenance issues both in the terminal and on the airfield.
