The Dane County Regional Airport (DCRA) on Tuesday opened the doors of the newly expanded South terminal to passengers after it completed the first part of a two-phase construction project. Crews from Miron Construction started the second phase and will demolish the old South wing of the terminal.

The county started the 90,000-square foot, $85 million expansion project in 2019 and included a family area, office space, children’s bathrooms, and a relief area for service animals, DCRA Director of Marketing and Communications Michael J.
