HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The state Department of Transportation is temporarily closing one the runways at the Honolulu International Airport for maintenance work, meaning more air traffic noise could be heard in certain Oahu communities.

Runway 8R-26L – or the Reef runway – will be closed from Wednesday through Saturday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly. During the closure, flights will be redirected to other runways, which may increase air traffic noise over the Ewa Plains and downtown Honolulu communities.

Construction is weather permitting.
