Runway 1R/19L is schedule to be closed between 7 a.m. EDT on Sept. 30 through 4 p.m. on Oct. 30 due to a runway maintenance project. Several concrete panels will be replaced during the 40-day closure.
Optimal North Operation
- Arrive Runway 1L and 1C, Depart Runway 1C (arrival rate of 64) Note that a 4-mile final to Runway 1C will be needed to accommodate 1C departures. Runway 30 departures will be reduced due to the impact on Runway 1C arrivals.
Optimal South Operation
- Arrive Runway 19R and 19C, Depart Runway 30 (arrival rate 60)
Arrival delays in excess of 30 minutes are possible during heavy peak traffic periods. Departures may also experience delays due to increased taxi time requirements.
During times of peak air traffic demand, ATC traffic management initiatives may be needed. These initiatives include mile-in-trail restrictions, possible ground stops and short-term ground delay programs.
