Has FLL Started Using Runway 13/31 Already?

Sun Sep 19, 2004 3:12 am

Have they started using the diagonal runway yet? I believe runway 13/31. The main runway 9L/27R was going to be closed very soon if it hasnt been closed already for repaving.

How long will this take? I remember hearing something like 3 months.

Miamix707- They began using the 13/31 rnwy on Tuesday morn. I believe is when I noticed the odd pattern. 13/30 and 9L/27R are also expected to close soon as they'll be working on the intersection there, not sure as to where the planes will land then.

oh ok thanks guys! last time i went to FLL was last friday a week ago and it was still normal operations.


13/30 and 9L/27R are also expected to close soon as they'll be working on the intersection there, not sure as to where the planes will land then

if they close the diagonal and 9/27 then no heavies will be able to land...

there was a thread before on this...i believe that 13/30 will or has been closed in the morning for a few days during the project. I think that the project will take 2-3 weeks (I'm hoping your right about 3 months, though...so I can have 2 TOs and 2 landings on 13/30!)
