Runway 17 Closure Begins Today

Beginning today, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) Runway 17/35 is closed and will remain closed for up to six weeks for runway safety area restoration work. More information about the project is available at

Aircraft operating at MSP will use Runways 12L/30R and 12R/30L while Runway 17/35 is closed. When one or more of the runways are closed, the arrivals and/or departures that would normally use that runway will be directed by air traffic control to use an open runway. You may also notice unusual lights, sounds, and equipment on the airfield.

Runway use information and flight activity are available on the MAC FlightTracker.  Anyone with questions about runway closures may call the Community Relations Office at 612-726-9411.
