Monroe Regional Airport's main runway to be shutdown temporarily


MONROE, Louisiana — The Monroe Regional Airport's main runway will be temporarily shut down for 20 days to complete safety constructions beginning Sept. 14.

Monroe Airport director Ron Phillips tells The News-Star ( ) airlines will use the secondary runway while the construction takes place.

Phillips says the project will not impact the number of flights into the airport but will affect the number of passengers on each flight. He says weight restrictions will require fewer passengers on each flight.

He says the construction project may be completed sooner, but it depends on weather.
