MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Air traffic at Myrtle Beach International Airport is back to normal after a problem with the runway lights forced flights to be canceled or delayed.

Local media outlets report the runway lights went out for about an hour Tuesday night causing the cancellation of three flights and delaying a fourth.

The lights were operating again about 10:15 p.m.

Kirk Lovell with the Horry County Department of Airports says it’s not known if the lights going out had anything to do with an ongoing $20 million project to renovate the runway.

Crews are currently paving the airport’s 9,500-foot runway during overnight hours.
