Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, in conjunction with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), airline partners and contractors, has completed the 21-day construction project on its longest runway.

The FAA, airport and airline staff prepared for more than six months on this project, which included a number of enhancements, such as state-of-the-art lighting, pavement repairs and marking, and taxi-way improvements.

More than 250 men and women worked around the clock to ensure that the $10.6 million North Runway Project was completed on time and in accordance with the FAA's regulations and safety guidelines.

The North Runway is the longest of Sky Harbor's three runways at almost 11,500 feet. More than 1,200 aircraft arrive and depart daily from Phoenix, which serves 100,000 passengers each day.
