Phoenix Airport Closes Runway 8/26 for Repairs

Dec. 6, 2017

Due to the repair of faulty concrete panels, Runway 8/26 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) will be closed from Jan. 8 – Feb. 21. As a result of the runway closure, the airport will be operating with lowered arrival and departure rates.

While delays will be possible at any time, they will be most likely during IMC conditions, between 7:30-10 a.m. and 5-8 p.m. (1430z – 1700z and 0000z – 0300z). To help manage these delays, air traffic managers may utilize ground delay programs, metering, miles-in-trail and airborne holding as needed.
