Runway maintenance means increased air traffic over Ewa plains

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - It might be a noisy Thursday night for west Oahu residents.

The Department of Transportation says a runway at the airport will be closed for maintenance, starting at 10:00 p.m. and lasting until 6:00 a.m. Friday.

Flight patterns for departing aircraft will change, resulting in increased air traffic over the Ewa plains area.

More work is scheduled for Saturday night.
