San Francisco International Airport to Repave Runway 1L

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has announced plans to repave and renovate its 1L runway.

This project will include repaving the surface layer, improving adjacent taxiways, upgrading lighting and painting new striping and markings.

The project team selected this period to avoid the busy summer and holiday seasons. The timeframe was also chosen for the low probability of precipitation, as dry weather is necessary for asphalt installation.

To enable this work to take place, runway 1L will be closed for eight weeks from 27 March 2023. It is then expected to reopen no later than 25 May 2023.

During this period, SFO will operate all arrivals and departures using its two primary runways: 28L and 28R.

Runway 1R, which is adjacent to the construction area, will remain open as an additional taxiway to reduce surface congestion.

The contract for this work was awarded to Golden Gate Constructors: a joint venture between DeSilva Gates Construction and Graniterock.

The total project cost is expected to be 51 million USD of which 27.9 million USD will be funded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
