The Hawai´i Department of Transportation Airports Division will conduct night-time runway work at the Hilo International Airport (ITO) throughout November.

ITO’s Runway 8/26 will be closed between midnight and 5:45 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6; Friday, Nov. 12; Saturday, Nov. 13; and Tuesday, Nov. 16. Runway 8/26 will also be closed on Sunday, Nov. 14 from 9 p.m. until 5:45 a.m.

No passenger, cargo or medical flights will be affected by the runway maintenance. Runway 3/21 will be used as an alternate. The Keaukaha community may notice an increase in air traffic noise because of the use of Runway 3/21.

The work being done is rubber removal and restriping of the runway. HDOT has scheduled this maintenance activity at night to reduce potential impact to airport operations.
