A $7.7 million dollar project at the Dane County Regional Airport will begin next month.

Funding has been approved for a new maintenance building. An airport development engineer said the building will replace an outdated building used to store and maintain snow removal equipment.

The Federal Aviation Administration is paying for $6.1 million of the project. Dane County will pay $1.1 million and the state will contribute $500,000.

The project is expected to be complete by November 2013.
