NOISE Alert

The north-south runway will be closed, Tuesday, March 2, from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for snow removal cleanup operations. These snow cleanup operations ensure snow does not accumulate at the runway edges, around runway lights or signage, creating a potential hazard to aircraft.

We appreciate your patience as aircraft will depart over populated areas east of the airport during this time. Learn More
