San Francisco International Airport Closes Runway 28L for Five Months

San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco International Airport will close Runway 28L for five months for the realignment of taxiways.

Construction is set to begin on January 16, 2024, with the reopening scheduled for July 1. The construction costs amount to 55 million U.S. dollars, with financial assistance received from the government.

During this period, incoming flights will be using Runway 28R. There is a possibility of delays, and it is predicted that, from January to April during peak demand, one-third of flights could experience delays of 30 to 60 minutes.

The realignment involves Taxiways Delta and Tango, where the existing taxiways will be removed and reconstructed as separate non-intersecting taxiways. This will enhance safety and ensure compliance with the latest standards.
