Runway 25L to Close Starting January 8 for Reconstruction

December 18, 2017

Runway 25L at Long Beach Airport will be closed starting January 8, 2018 for reconstruction. General Aviation aircraft that typically use this runway will be diverted to 25R, the airport’s secondary runway, and occasionally Runway 12-30, the airport’s main runway.

Communities surrounding the airport are advised that during this time, there will be noticeably more air traffic in those areas. The FAA Air Traffic Control Tower will direct the displaced flights at their discretion.

Runway 25L is anticipated to reopen by the end of July 2018, pending any construction delays. Following Runway 25L reopening, Runway 25R will close for 1 month for the construction of blast pads which will help stabilize the ground from jet blasts. Minimal flight displacement is anticipated during this time.
