Does anybody know if they are lengthening runway 14/32 at BUF? Since they knocked down the old Westinghouse factory there has been construction activity at the end of the runway. I don't know if they are actually lengthening the runway though.

Yep, I posted about this a few months ago. 14/32 is getting lengthened to 7100 feet. They are doing this for two reasons. First off, it will be able to safely handle commercial jet traffic as a crosswind runway. Right now the biggest planes using it are ERJ's. Secondly, they are going to completely rehabilitate the main runway 5/23 in a few years and it will be closed for many months.
Hope this answers it.
