Dane County airport adds parking

By the end of the year, visitors to the Dane County Regional Airport will be able to choose from an additional 1,500 parking spaces, including 700 that will be available within the next week. Airport officials have added the spaces as part of a 20-year, $20 million plan to stay ahead of parking needs as airport use increases. Three additional levels of parking were added to the original structure, bringing the total number of covered ramp parking spots to 4,465. The ramp expansion is being paid for by airport parking revenues, and the additional slots are expected to generate nearly $1 million a year.
