2-Month Runway Project at Newark Airport Will Change Air Traffic Patterns

A major 60-day rehabilitation project will begin this week at one of Newark Liberty International Airport's major north-south runways.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, says the work will require a temporary change in flight patterns that will bring more planes than usual over communities in Jersey City, Bayonne and Staten Island.

The work on Runway 4L-22R is due to start Tuesday.

It will keep the landing strip in a state-of-good-repair and add high-speed taxiways that will help reduce on-ground plane delays, officials said. 

The project also will include airfield electrical overhaul and feature energy-efficient LED lighting.

Runway 11-29, which runs in an east-west configuration, will see more landing activity than usual.
