Runway Closing Will Add Flights Over East, Southeast Lincoln
The Lincoln Airport Authority (www.lincolnairport.com) recently released information regarding some changes in air traffic patterns due to a runway closure.
From Jon Large, Deputy Director of Engineering, “We have begun a project to update our Runway 18/36 lighting and control systems, replacing the 25-year-old system installed in 1992. This project is expected to take approximately 60 days and will result in Lincolnites seeing and hearing more traffic in the east and southeast parts of town.”
This $2M project is partially funded by a $1.8M grant from the FAA and means that the Airport has to rely more heavily on its smaller 14/32 runway which will cause an increase in the noise and visibility of Lincoln’s air traffic on the affected sides of town.
