SFO Announces Weekend Closure of Runway Intersection for Maintenance, 9/29 and 9/30

Intersection of two runways to be closed September 29-30, 2018

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) announced schedule updates to this weekend’s closure at the intersection of two runways to perform maintenance work. The activity will occur September 29-30, 2018, at the intersection of Runways 28L and 1R. Airport crews will perform work on the structure below the pavement in preparation for holiday traffic and rainy winter weather.

The updated schedule of runway closures will be as follows:

  • Runway 28L will be closed for 30 hours, from Saturday, September 29th at 1:00am until Sunday, September 30th at 7:00am
  • Runway 01R will be closed for 22 hours, from Saturday, September 29th at 1:00am until 11:00pm

These runway closures are anticipated to affect normal operations, and delays may be likely during this period. Travelers are encouraged to visit flysfo.com or check with their airline for delay information.

“The intersection of two runways are among the most heavily-used surfaces at SFO,” said Airport Director Ivar C. Satero. “This weekend runway maintenance work will ensure this high-traffic area remains available during our busy holiday travel season, and through wet weather conditions. I appreciate the patience and understanding of travelers during this closure.”

In 2017, SFO made a series of improvements to Runway 28L, installing new long-lasting LED centerline lights and revising taxiways to improve operational efficiency.
