DTW Runway Construction

Wed Sep 06, 2006 12:44 am

While arriving from MCO-DTW last night on 22R (the 752 sure is a nice bird), I noticed during the taxi that DTW had a runway with a big fat X on the end.

Upon checking their website, it was confirmed that 9R/27L is closed for construction, and it appears that it took 3R/21 down with it.

Does anyone know what improvments/modifications are being made to those runways?

IIRC they are using that runway for taxi at the moment, and its been that way for about two years or so.

Look ma' no hands!
