SFO Runway Work Wraps Up 1 Week Ahead of Schedule

A runway reconstruction project that for nearly two weeks has triggered scores of delays and cancellations at San Francisco International Airport wrapped up Thursday, one week ahead of schedule, the airport said.

SFO reopened all runways at 8:15 p.m. Thursday, about one week earlier than initially scheduled.

Air travelers may still come across delays and cancellations until the reopening Thursday night, the airport warned. In the meantime, travelers should contact their airline directly to check on flight statuses.

Since starting construction on Sept. 7, crews working on Runway 28L have installed a new base layer and are repaving and repainting the surface layer, according to the airport. Work was also done on Runway 1L.
