Honolulu International to temporarily close runway

Honolulu International Airport's reef runway will be temporarily closed for maintenance.

The runway will be closed for airfield maintenance work on Tuesday night, February 5, through the following Tuesday, February 12, from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m., nightly.

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