Sunport runway closing for repairs for a month

Sunport runway closing for repairs |

You might be seeing more planes flying in and out of Albuquerque in routes you’re not used to.

That’s because a major runway at the Albuquerque Sunport is closing for repairs for about a month.

Construction started Monday on the east/west runway.

All commercial traffic will use the northeast/southeast runway in the meantime.

Airport officials say Nob Hill and Southeast Heights neighborhoods could be affected by the runway closure – but say it all really depends on air traffic at the time of landing.

Crews will be installing more efficient LED center-line lights and replace sections of the concrete.
