MSP Parallel Runways Closed Overnight

MSP Runway DiagramMSP’s parallel runways (Runways 12L/30R and 12R/30L) will be closed tonight beginning at 11pm through tomorrow morning at 6am. Crews will be working on a project to upgrade runway lights from incandescent to LED. The closure may recur tomorrow overnight (November 4) as needed. 

Air Traffic Controllers will assign runways that provide the greatest amount of headwind for takeoffs and landings. With winds expected from the southwest this evening, arriving and departing aircraft may be routed to Runway 17. You may notice unusual flight patterns in your community while the parallel-runways are not in use.
