Honolulu airport to temporarily close runway

HONOLULU (AP) - Honolulu International Airport's reef runway will be temporarily closed for maintenance.

The runway, which is located on the southern edge of the airport, will be shut down from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Thursday.

State transportation officials say the work will force more aircraft traffic over parts of urban Honolulu, from Kalihi to downtown.
