Aircraft Activity Returning to Runway 17

Intermittent maintenance activity on MSP’s parallel runways (Runways 12L/30R and 12R/30L) may require the use of Runway 17 for departing aircraft during peak departure periods beginning today, Thursday July 2. This activity may seem unusual for communities south of Runway 17, as the number of aircraft using this runway has been minimal since April this year. 

As aircraft activity begins to rebound and periods of normal runway maintenance occur throughout the summer, Runway 17 will continue to be utilized as needed to maintain safe and efficient activity at MSP.
