Nighttime Runway 12-30 Closure
January 5, 2022 - August 2022
A major construction project to improve the safety of the Long Beach Airport (LGB) airfield will commence the first week in January and is expected to last through August 2022. The $25 million project, primarily funded by grants from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), will bring the airport in line with the latest FAA standards.
The project, approved by City Council on August 3, 2021, will reconstruct Taxiway L, which is the primary taxiway for all departing commercial aircraft. The asphalt pavement has reached the end of its useful service and will be reconstructed with concrete pavement that has an anticipated service life of 40 years.
Because the construction will occur adjacent to the main runway, Runway 12-30 will close nightly from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. through approximately August, with the exception of Friday and Saturday evenings. Due to the closure, operations will shift to Runway 08L-26R, which runs parallel and just north of Wardlow Road. A map showing the change in flight paths can be viewed below.
For more details on the project, check out the public notice.
Long Beach Airport has three runways. Runway 12-30 is the primary runway and is utilized for commercial air traffic. Runway 8L-26R is the secondary runway and is used for general aviation uses and for commercial air traffic when Runway 12-30 is closed. Runway 8R-26L is the shortest of the runways and is used for general aviation.
