November 03, 1996|By Consella A. Lee | Consella A. Lee,SUN STAFF

Construction crews are expected to complete work on one phase of a runway project at Baltimore-Washington International Airport this weekend and begin work later this month on another, forcing a shift in aircraft flight patterns.

Residents of some parts of Anne Arundel, Howard and Baltimore counties should expect to hear more jets overhead as flights are shifted to alternative runways while work is being done. Repaving Runway 15R/33L, the main north-south runway, began Aug. 15 and is to be completed over the weekend. Crews will begin to replace lighting, groove surfaces and paint the runway next week. During that time, the runway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily and for four hours at midday.

Crews will begin work on the lights along the center line of Runway 10/28, the main east-west runway, in the third week in November and continue through mid-December, airport officials said.

That runway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily during that time, with air traffic being moved to other runways.
