SYR Wraps Up Main Runway Rehabilitation Project Ahead of Schedule

Syracuse, New York –The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) announced today that construction on the multi-month “Runway 10-28 Rehabilitation Project” has been completed ahead of schedule. This five-month undertaking saw the remediation and reconstruction of the primary runway at Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR).

During construction, SYR’s primary east-west runway (10-28) was closed, and the airport’s southeast-northwest runway (15-33) acted as the primary runway. As a result, residents in the vicinity of the airport noticed a change in aircraft traffic patterns, including low-flying aircraft.

“We are pleased to announce that despite the exceptionally-above average rainfall this summer – and subsequent weather delays – we reopened 10-28 this afternoon, approximately two weeks ahead of schedule,” said SYR Executive Director Jason Terreri. “We appreciate our neighbors’ patience and understanding as we continue our mission of providing a safe and secure airport to the community.”

In addition to the work that was done on the asphalt, new lighting and signage were installed to further enhance safety upgrades to the main runway.
