Boston Logan International Airport’s Runway 15R-33L will be closed to arrivals and departures from August 14 until mid-November while it undergoes pavement rehabilitation and safety improvements.
Last restored in 2012, the 10,083-foot runway is primarily used during northwest winds, which are typically prevalent in the winter and spring. It is the preferred noise-abatement runway for late-night flights over Boston Harbor.
The work, which will be done in phases, includes replacing pavement and improving runway and taxiway intersections, upgrading electrical infrastructure, and converting runway lights to energy-efficient LEDs. In addition, safety enhancements will be made to several taxiway intersections to reduce the risk of incursions.
A spokesperson for Massport told AIN that the work “will not impact access to” the Signature Flight Support FBO. Also, due to high traffic volume, PPR (prior permission required) is currently in effect for GA operations. According to the FBO, “With high demand during the summer/fall season, aircraft arriving at Signature Boston may experience hold times and parking delays due to ramp congestion.”
