Gov. Scott Walker has approved more than $14 million in improvement projects to Milwaukee County’s General Mitchell International Airport, according to a state Department of Transportation news release.

About $10.9 million will pay for safety improvements on Runway 1L/19R by extending the concrete by 300 feet to meet Federal Aviation Administration standards, according to the release.

The other two projects approved by Walker include:
– About $1.7 million to install ground power and preconditioned air units at Concourse E.
– About $1.4 million to replace electrical cables serving runway lights and navigational aids, rehabilitate deteriorated pavement joints at a runway intersection and replace six-foot perimeter fencing with 10-foot fencing along Layton Avenue.

The projects should be completed by next fall, according to the department.
