Runway 5-23

The runway 5-23 rehabilitation project will reconstruct the Buffalo Niagara International Airport’s main runway. From May 8 through the summer the runway will undergo preventative maintenance, this proactive action is key to air travel’s incredible safety record. 

Because 5-23 is Buffalo’s most used runway, while it is closed people in the region will notice planes using alternative flight paths more frequently. Sound patterns will change, but it is temporary. We have worked very hard to minimize any impact on travelers and residents around the airport. The construction will take place mostly during the day with occasional overnight work, during times in which there are very few – and usually no – schedule flights.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience, we applaud your patience, and we know this project is going to ensure Buffalo Niagara remains one of America’s premier airports.
