Airport reference point information

Airport References Points (ARP) - An airport reference point is the center point of an airport, located at the geometric center of all the usable runways.

WisDOT has developed buffer rings for private and public use airports. They are based on requirements outlined in the Wisconsin Highway Department’s Facilities Development Manual.

This data provides general guidance and airport information for highway construction projects in and around Wisconsin airports. It specifically makes contractors and consultants aware of these areas, as well as providing contact information for both public and private-use airports.
