JFK runway to be shut down for 6 months

From AM-NY:

The Port Authority has shut down one of four runways at Kennedy Airport for six months so workers can repave and expand it, officials said Monday night at a monthly meeting in Hempstead designed to address concerns about aircraft noise.

The $450 million project also includes lengthening the runway, known as 4L/22R, by 1,000 feet to meet federal safety standards and widening it from 150 to 200 feet to accommodate larger aircraft, said John Selden, the deputy general manager at Kennedy during a meeting of the Towns-Village Aircraft Safety and Noise Abatement Committee.

The Port Authority, which operates the airport, will also construct additional high-speed taxiways, which Selden told the committee would lead to fewer flight delays.

Likely for the shuttle Obama is going to ram down our throats his "immigration reunification" program. It flys in the parents and extended family of the millions of illegals already here. All will be democrat voting parasites for life

A plane was forced to make an emergency landing at LaGuardia Airport after it was struck by a bird Thursday afternoon. Very dangerous conditions for all that live near these busy airports.

The Mayor of NY and many other politicians of NY claim they are environmentalist but continue to allow more damage to the health and well being of Queens residents by allowing more and more polluting planes to fly in our skies.
