Article: ORF Parallel Runway Delayed

Several public hearings on the proposal were held. Most residents were supportive but wanted assurances that the runway’s effect on water quality and noise levels would be minimal.

Interesting that when the neighbors don't complain about a new runway, the FAA suddenly is in no hurry to build it.

ORF has over 200 commerical flights a day?? I didn't realize that they had that many. Its too bad that they put this project on delay for another 2 to 3 years, I was really excited that it was going to be finished by 2007.
