Runway construction projects present hazards to aircraft and air traffic control operations. To help mitigate these hazards, the FAA created an initiative to increase awareness of closures and construction at various airports across the nation. This website is dedicated to helping pilots, airport authorities that sponsor construction projects, and air traffic managers avoid the hazards associated with construction.

The FAA's Airport Construction Advisory Council is a volunteer group of air traffic managers around the U.S. who help identify potentially dangerous situations during airport construction projects and work with airports, industry and international organizations to implement ways to significantly mitigate accompanying risks. The central theme of the ACAC is "Managers working with managers". If you have an upcoming construction project, contact the ACAC at International inquiries from air traffic service providers (or pilots) are welcome — we recognize our issues may be your issues.
