I just saw a quick blurb on the news about a "key" runway closing at BOS for a week due to the construction of the new runway. I assume it's either 4R or 4L.

It would be nice if 4R close since I live directly under the approach for 4L and wouldn't mind seeing planes bigger than the 737 flying directly over my house. I assume they would just switch to 33L for landings during N or E winds though.

It will probably be 4R. Massport has been talking about a light replacement project on the runway, plus some work related to the addition of the new runway.

Quoting Ren41 (Thread starter):
I assume they would just switch to 33L for landings during N or E winds though.

If the winds shift more to the N, they probably would land on 33L and depart 27. If the winds stay to the east, landing on 33L would mean landing with a tailwind. In this case they would most likely land on 15R, which is ILS equipped and has been used in the past. They don't like to use it for landings often, but they can use it if need be. In either case, they would be limited to one landing runway for all but small props that can use 15L-33R. So if the weather becomes a little bit dicey, you are probably looking at GDP's into BOS for some time.

I just checked, and 15L-33R is a 2557 ft long. Is that even enough for a DH8/SF3/BE1 to take off/land on? Or would by small do you mean C172s and C402s etc.

2500 is short even by small airport standards. Cessnas would use it and not much else.

Cape Air flights certainly. I have seen Dash 7's use the runway in the past, but the airplanes have amazing short field capability. 1900's might be able to use it, though I am not terribly familiar with the performance of the airplane.

The weather forecast this week has no precipitation and light winds through Sunday, so Massport decided they would try and do the project all at once. Winds are forecast from mostly the southwest, which means 22R for dep and 27 for arrivals. There will be some delays, but it shouldn't be too bad.

Runway closed for re-paving, delays expected

Logan to shut key runway for week

By Peter J. Howe, Globe Staff | September 3, 2005

Opting for one long headache instead of several shorter ones, Logan International Airport officials plan to shut down a key runway for seven straight days starting Monday morning to finish a $7.5 million repaving project.

People flying in and out of Logan next week could encounter delays of 15 to 30 minutes, and potentially much longer, depending on whether shifting winds make a second big runway unusable.
