Funds for these projects will come from the state and the city of Tomah.

The engineering for the planning documents began in February and is expected to be complete in October 2019.

Airport improvement projects are administered through the WisDOT Bureau of Aeronautics. Bloyer Field is one of 97 facilities included in the Wisconsin State Airport System Plan, which makes it eligible for state funding.
