Construction to a runway at Winnipeg’s Richardson International Airport will increase air traffic over select city neighbourhoods beginning next week.

Officials say the airport will temporarily close one of its two runways for a rehabilitation project beginning April 22, which is scheduled to last until September.

During that time, all flights will be using the other runway and residents may notice a difference in flight patterns overhead.

The northwest-southeast runway flight path will see a temporary decrease in overhead air traffic. This affects:

  • Fort Garry-Riverview
  • Fort Richmond
  • Fort Rouge (west)
  • Fort Whyte (northeast)
  • Headingley
  • Riel
  • River Heights
  • Seine River
  • Southdale
  • St. François-Xavier
  • St. James (east)
  • St. Vital
  • Tuxedo (east)
  • Wolseley (west)

The north-south runway flight path will see a temporary increase in overhead air traffic. This affects:

  • Assiniboia (east)
  • Kirkfield Park (east)
  • The Maples (west)
  • Roblin Park (east)
  • Rosser (east)
  • St. James (west)
  • Stonewall
  • Tuxedo (west)
  • Tyndall Park (west)

The airport is expected to continue normal operations and scheduled flights with no reduction in service.
