The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) has announced plans to rehabilitate and improve safety on Runway 15R-33L at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) this summer.

In collaboration with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Massport will begin work on Runway 15R-33L in August, with construction taking place over a 100-day period.

Runway 15R-33L is the longest runway at Boston Logan. It is primarily used by the FAA during northwest winds, which are most common in winter and spring months.

It is also the preferred late-night runway for noise abatement purposes.

Runway 15R-33L was last rehabilitated in 2012

The Runway 15R-33L Safety and Pavement Rehabilitation Project will improve runway safety by enhancing its lighting and surface conditions.

Work will be done in several phases and will include replacing pavement and improving runway and taxiway intersections; upgrading electrical infrastructure; and converting runway lights to energy-efficient LEDs.

In addition, FAA-recommended safety improvements will be made to several taxiway intersections to reduce the potential risk of aircraft runway incursions.
