BILLINGS -

Need to plan a late trip or want friends or family to come visit this summer by plane. Make sure you check flight schedules

Starting next week, the Billings Logan Airport will shut down over the weekend to all commercial flights for construction on the main runway. The repaving project comes after officials found the safety of the landing surface is at risk. The engineer manager says runway life spans are about 15 years, and the runway is due for a facelift.

The work will be for six consecutive weekends throughout July and last until August 18th.

In addition to repaving, thirteen miles of lighting electrical cable will be removed and replaced with over one hundred runway lights.
