Runway and Taxiway Construction

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.
