Thank you for for reading the General Mitchell
International Airport (MKE) Airfield Update. This newsletter is intended to keep
you up-to-date on airfield construction projects, regular maintenance, and
special events that could impact the standard flow of arriving or
departing air traffic.
It's the time of year when children get ready to go back to school! It's also the time of year when we celebrate the completion of this summer's
major airfield construction projects. Thank you for your patience during this time. Although there are some remaining daily closures during normal business hours, we do not expect any overnight closures until next year's regular annual maintenance projects. As always, there will also be intermittent closures in place during daytime hours.
