Runway work to alter BWI flight patterns

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 Glen Burnie, Linthicum, Millersville and Crownsville may notice changes in noise patterns, while residents in parts of Howard and Baltimore counties should expect to hear more jets as flights are shifted to other runways.

Repaving of 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 in the second week of November.

During that period, the runway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily and for four hours starting 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. The runway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily during that period.
