(Hebron, Ky.) – The Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Airport begins making some repairs to its runways Monday.
Two runways will temporarily close for the required repairs through early October. Runway 18C/36C will close for 125 days starting today, followed by the closure of Runway 9/27 for 18 days on September 19.
A second phase of repairs will begin in March 2012.
The airport says it has been working with the Federal Aviation Administration to reduce air traffic and noise over densely populated areas approaching the airport.
Runways 18C/36C and 9/27 are primary nighttime runways, according to CVG officials. As a result, certain areas to the north and south may see a temporary increase in nighttime traffic.
To minimize the noise impact, the Control Tower will continue to direct large jet departures northwest over the river corridor.
Anybody with concerns about noise from jets landing and takign off from the airport can call CVG's Noise Abatement Office at (859) 767-7020 or e-mail email@example.com.
