The north runway at Portland International Airport (PDX) will temporarily close on Tuesday, August 3. The closure is scheduled to last approximately 2 months and is needed to complete work on the North Runway Extension (NREX) project which is part of a three-year runway rehabilitation program at PDX. Due to the closure, the crosswind and south runways will carry higher than normal volumes of air traffic until the north runway reopens this fall. Neighbors near the airport are likely to notice this change in aircraft operations, especially underneath the arrival and departure pattern for the crosswind runway.
