BWI runway construction will divert night flights

Construction work to lengthen a runway at Baltimore-Washington International Airport will change night flight patterns through late September, according to a statement from the airport.

"There are people who will be exposed to the aircraft noise who otherwise would not be exposed to it," said Adrienne Walker-Pittman, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Aviation Administration.

Workers will close the runway periodically between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., and traffic will be diverted to Runway 15R/33L and Runway 4/22. Normal night operations are scheduled to resume in October, and the work is expected to be completed in November.

For more information or to lodge a noise complaint, residents may call the airport's noise abatement office at (410) 859-7021.
