A six-month airfield lighting circuit project at New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport (TEB) will require a daily runway closure from 6 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday through Tuesday beginning May 11.
During these planned closures, a single runway operation will be used, which may result in flight delays during times of peak demand. In addition, a closure to all fixed-wing operations due to both runways being closed will occur from 3-6 a.m. Saturday through Tuesday beginning May 11 and lasting through the summer. This lighting circuit project is required to repair damage which occurred during Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
The runway closure schedule is as follows:
Saturday through Tuesday:
- Single runway closure 6 a.m.-2 p.m. (1000z-1800z)
- Both runways closed 3-6 a.m. (0700z-1000z)
- Various taxiways closed 3 a.m.-2 p.m. (0700z-1800z)
Operators should note additional runway closures and taxiway closures are required for other projects occurring on the airfield. Consult current NOTAMs for all closures.
For approximately the first six weeks of the project Runway 1/19 will be closed, resulting in the use of Runway 6/24. When Runway 6/24 is closed later in the project, operators will utilize Runway 1/19.
Teterboro Airport management will look at the forecasted weather the day prior to the scheduled closures and may postpone the closure if the weather conditions would not support flight operations on the available runway.
The use of single runway operations up/down Runway 19 will try to be avoided during peak times due to the likely departure delays caused by operational requirements separating the TEB departure with the EWR arrivals.
