San Antonio International Airport (SAT) has closed one of its runways due to a construction project on the airfield.
Runway 12R/30L will be reopened mid-April, 2017, as scheduled maintenance and safety improvements are completed on adjacent areas and taxiways in the Runway Safety Area. During construction, Runway 12R/30L is being used as a taxiway to support operations on Runway 4/22 and to facilitate aircraft movements in and out of the West Terminal Complex.
The airport has warned that neighborhoods to the northeast and southwest of the airport may notice an increase in air traffic during the project, as aircraft landings and take-offs will be exclusive to Runway 4/22 until Runway 12R/30L is re-opened in mid-April with its new designation as Runway 13R/31L.
When complete, SAT’s airfield will have updated taxiway surfaces along with improved runway lighting facilities that will enhance safe aircraft operations.
