Letter to Editor: Expect Aeroplane Noise March to May

San Francisco International has announced an upcoming eight-week runway closure, but it is reassuring travelers that it shouldn’t cause much of a problem for flight operations.


SFO said Runway 1 Left — the airport’s shortest runway — will close from March 27 through May 25 for a repaving job. During the closure, all arriving and departing flights will use Runways 28 Left and 28 Right, “a common configuration, often used during clear windy days.” SFO said the paving project should cause “few delays during clear conditions and delays of less than an hour during foggy mornings,” as well as slightly longer taxi times for departing flights.


The dates of the project were selected to get the work done before the busy summer travel season begins.
