Ottawa International Airport Runway Construction
I would like to advise the community that there will be a noticeable difference in air traffic for our community over the coming months as the Ottawa International Airport closes the East-West runway for upgrades. This is phase II of a three-part project to rehabilitate all active runways at the Ottawa International Airport. Beginning June 1, the airport’s east-west runway, will be the focus of attention.
Because of the complexity of the project, the runway will be closed for the duration of the reconstruction, which is expected to last until early September. This closure means that north-south runway will be used for all commercial traffic. This will bring a temporary reprieve of aircraft noise for communities in the east and west, and a temporary increase in noise for communities to the north and south of the airport.
The complete letter from the Airport Authority is posted below for your benefit. If you have any questions, please contact my office at 613-580-2751 or visit the airport website at www.ottawa-airport.ca.
