Project Runway, or: Love Field Still Too Loud For You? The City Says It's Working On It.
The job was supposed to have been wrapped November 20. And it was. Except ... well, here, let Assistant City Manager A.C. Gonzalez explain via Hunt's Thursday-night blog post:
While the Denton Dr. runway (RY 13R) was reopened in early November, on-going construction continues to limit aircraft access to the runway even though it is open. Therefore, the amount of traffic on the Lemmon Ave runway (RY 13L) has indeed remained higher than normal (pre-runway closure).Hunt says she's "committed to working to resolve this." Unless the mayor tells her to back off. I kid, I kid.
Staff is coordinating with the contractor, FAA Air Traffic staff and Southwest representatives to see if there are options to relieve the congestion which is causing the aircraft access problem to the runway. We expect to know some options to consider by tomorrow, pending the availability of the key people in those organizations.
