Aviation Week continues in Wisconsin. An important feature of any airport is pavement. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation's (WisDOT) Airport Improvement Program combines federal, state and local resources to help fund improvements to over 98 public-use airports throughout the state. Improvements include runway reconstruction and rehabilitation projects at the Rice Lake Regional Airport and taxiway and apron projects at the Solon Springs Municipal Airport among others. As of January 2016, 87 percent of airport pavements in the state rated at fair or above with airports around the state are benefiting from pavement improvement projects.
