Runway closure causing possible delays at Sky Harbor.
Whoever said progress came easy hasn’t spoken to air travelers. Sky Harbor will be closing it’s north runway for construction and maintenance of a new and improved Terminal 3. Starting on Oct. 6 till Nov. 6, the airport’s Terminal 3 Modernization Program will take place. If you have plans to travel during that time you should plan for delays. Sky Harbor issued a statement saying travelers may see up to 30 minute delays during peak travel times. Peak times are from 7:30 a.m. until 10 a.m. and in the evenings from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m., according to Sky Harbor. The runway’s concrete will be removed and then re-paved. Sky Harbor says the construction is key for the modernization program of the terminal because it “will provide a more efficient and consolidated security checkpoint, more space for passengers and state-of-the-art technology systems.”
