The Prairie du Chien Municipal Airport’s new $1.06 million terminal on the south side of the community is very close to completion. Wieser Brothers, of La Crescent, Minn., has constructed the modern-looking structure and completed a good share of the exterior concrete and brick facade. Roofing and edge metal work is needed yet. Inside, crews are working on finishes, doors, casework, heating, plumbing and electrical work.
“Most of the construction will be completed about mid-February,” said Al Szymanski, team leader for MSA professional Services.
“The terminal should be operational in late spring or early summer, City Administrator Aaron Kramer said.
At that time, site work, such as landscaping and seeding, will be done, Szymanski said.
The city is currently accepting bids for the removal of the current terminal building, though if no bids are received, the building could be torn down at a later date.
