More than 100 flights have been cancelled and over 300 flights have been delayed at San Francisco International Airport due to the closure of a couple of runway intersections that are under maintenance.
Two of the main runways at SFO have been shut down since 1 a.m. and will continue to be shut down until 7 a.m. Sunday. This has caused 114 cancelations and 378 delays, SFO officials confirmed.
"The intersection of two runways are among the most heavily-used surfaces at SFO," said Airport Director Ivar C. Satero. "This weekend runway maintenance work will ensure this high-traffic area remains available during our busy holiday travel season, and through wet weather conditions. I appreciate the patience and understanding of travelers during this closure."
