Construction will resume on the Tulsa International Airport’s primary commercial service runway on Wednesday.

The $19.9 project is the third phase of a multi-phase effort to reconstruct the airport’s runway. The runway was last reconstructed in 1982.

The airport will remain open throughout the project and commercial flight activity will operate on the airport’s crosswind runway. Passengers may experience delays or cancellations when weather conditions prohibit the use of the crosswind runway.
Area residents will also likely notice a change in the regular flight pattern of airplanes on approach to and departing from the airport.

Airports Director Jeff Mulder said, “Airport staff and contractors are committed to completing this project with minimal disruption to flight operations paired with acute awareness of the safety considerations that come into play with an airfield project. I consider this infrastructure project to be critical to the economic activity of our region and am pleased that we were able to move forward with an advanced construction schedule to minimize the impact to airport customers.”

The project is predominantly funded by Federal Aviation Administration grants.
