Osceola Area Airport Technology Upgrade

Governor Doyle has designated three state airports, including the L.O. Simenstad Municipal Airport near Osceola, to receive funding to develop localizer precision with vertical guidance technology (LPV), . LPV technology increases safety at airports by providing guidance information to allow planes to fly closer to the airport before deciding if it is safe to land. The project is scheduled for completion by September 2010.
