A runway at Winnipeg’s airport closed for construction will be reopening on Thursday, and air traffic over some of the city’s neighbourhoods will return back to normal.
Runway 18/36 at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport was closed on April 28, for repair work including asphalt resurfacing, repair to the centerline and lights, and sewer repairs, according to a release by the Winnipeg Airports Authority.
While the repairs were in progress, traffic was rerouted, and several neighbourhoods in Winnipeg had higher air traffic, including Lakeside (west), River Heights, Tuxedo (east), Wolseley (west), Fort Rouge (west), Fort Whyte (northeast), Fort Garry-Riverview, Riel, Fort Richmond, St. Vital, Southdale, and Seine River.
Those neighbourhoods will now return to air traffic levels as they were before the runway closed.
