Nighttime runway work at the Hilo International Airport will soon be underway, according to the Hawai‘i Department of Transportation.

The primary Hilo International Airport runway, 8/26, will be closed nightly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., April 22 and 23, and may finish sooner, weather permitting. During the closure, the alternate runway, 3/21, will be used for aircraft operations.

The pavement repairs were originally scheduled for April 9-12, but due to heavy rain, crews could not complete the project. The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation has scheduled this maintenance work at night to minimize impacts to air travelers and airline operations, and to reduce the project duration to the extent possible.
