Logan Runways 4R and 22R Set for Needed Repairs

Projects will result in periodic runway closures

BOSTON Ė The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) will rehabilitate Runway 4R and Runway 22R at Boston Logan later this month. These repairs are expected to start this week and last until late November. These repairs are required before the beginning of the winter season.

Massport will be working with the FAA to minimize operational disruptions, and depending on wind and weather conditions, other runway configurations will be used to accommodate operations at Boston Logan. As a result, residents from neighboring communities may experience an increase or decrease in the number of over flights during the projects. These projects are expected to take about 45 calendar days (weather permitting) to be completed or by about the 3rd week in November.

Details of the Runway 4R project include:
* Rehabilitate the center 35 feet on either side of the centerline on portions of the runway. 
* The intersections with Taxiway C and Runway 9-27 will be rehabilitated the full width of the runway (150 feet) and to the Runway 4R limits of the safety area. This will replace deteriorated asphalt pavement that was last rehabilitated in 2005.
* In addition, 10 feet along the centerline of the runway from Runway 15R-33L to the Runway 22L threshold will receive a mill and inlay to replace severely cracked and deteriorated pavement.
* Work will occur during extended runway closures predominantly on weekends. Work north of Runway 15R-33L is limited to daytime work only, with weekends starting at 8AM Saturday, 9AM Sunday.
* All paved areas will be grooved.

The second project is the enhancement of the Runway 4L-22R safety area at the Runway 22R end.  This project will include replacing the existing Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) bed and construction of an inclined safety area. This project is being done to meet a Congressional mandated requirement that airports work with FAA to improve runway safety areas across the country.

All Runway 4R project activities will occur during extended runway closures predominantly on weekends. Work north of Runway 15R-33L is limited to daytime work only, with weekends starting at 8AM Saturday, 9AM Sunday. 

All Runway 22R project activities will take place on Boston Loganís airfield. Construction work hours are restricted to 7 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Saturday construction activity will begin at 8 a.m., Sunday work will start at 9 a.m. Massport will work closely with contractors to reduce noise and other construction impacts on nearby communities.

For information on specific changes in runway usage, please call Massportís Noise Complaint Line at 617-561-3333 during Noise Abatement Office hours of Monday through Friday, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Noise Complaint Line will continue to be available to receive noise complaints 24 hours per day, seven days per week. 

For general information on this project, please call Massportís Office of Government and Community Affairs at 617-568-3711 (Monday ĖFriday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).
