South Runway Closed For Extended Period

In preparation for the South Runway Expansion Project, the South Runway (9R-27L), closed on Tuesday, April 17, 2012. This runway primarily handles general aviation aircraft.

This closure has limited impact to passengers on large commercial airlines. Smaller general aviation and commuter aircraft that used the South Runway, will now operate on the main North Runway.

The South Runway closed to allow construction crews to build the longer and elevated South Runway with structures over US 1 and the FEC Railroad tracks. The new expanded South Runway is expected to reopen in late 2014.
