GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Officials say construction at one of Gerald R. Ford International Airport’s three runways isn’t expected to affect current airport operations.

The airport says work begins June 22 at the Grand Rapids airport on runway 8L/26R, an east-west runway just north of the airport’s terminal building.

The runway’s primary purpose is to accommodate smaller general aviation and flight training activity. The concrete runway surface has degraded over time. Officials say the work will help flight training activity to continue to grow at the airport.

The reconstruction project will be completed within 90 days. The airport says traffic will be handled on two other operable runways during the work.
