Tampa International Airport to close runway for maintenance

TAMPA, Fla (TBO.com)- Tampa International Airport will close its main runway for maintenance for a month beginning Sept. 23, diverting landings and takeoffs to the airport’s east parallel runway that could create more noise over South Tampa residential areas.

The repair work is routine maintenance that must be done every 15 years, an airport release said.

In addition to work on the primary runway on the west side of the airport adjacent to the Veteran’s Expressway, crews will perform concrete maintenance on other parts of the airfield, including a section of a lightly used east-west runway and two taxiways.
