the only reason i can think of not to do it between one and six AM, the (admittedly too short_ hours when the airport is closed is that construction/skilled workers get paid far more to work third shift than first shift. as far as weekends, perhaps there are more flights that would be displaced M-F? that's just a guess.

Still don't understand if this is do to with construction as they said, why not do the construction at night when the airport is closed or at least NOT early am weekends where people are tying to sleep after a long week's work. It's a big FU to the people that live here.

Agreed. It's always runway 13/31. It's been getting work from Friday 10PM to Sunday 12PM for a very long time on most weekends. I'm sure the weekend is the best time to do it is the reason it's happening (I was also guessing traffic volume), and there isn't much they can do for the departing flights to not pass over our neighborhood with that runway out of commission.

I hate it as well, just trying to come at it from a place of rationality. I'm just at this point where I'm thinking, how long does it take to do all the maintenance? This wasn't happening much at all for the first 3-4 years I've been here, just recent years.

The official notice:
"Runway 13/31 will be closed from 12/11/15 10:00 PM to 12/13/15 12:00 PM for runway pavement work, and electrical maintenance work, subject to air traffic control needs and weather conditions."

i moved into the neighborhood in 1996, and that year, we didn't have any noise to speak of. i forget if it was '97 and '98 or '98 and '99 that were back to back TERRIBLE summer/autumns for airplane noise, then a long quiet spell. and now this.

Just wanted to register here that Dec. 19, Saturday, was another nasty day with noise from about 6 am to at least around noon.

Indeed - thanks for reminding me that I wanted to submit a complaint for Saturday the 19th, which I just did. I'm really trying to make a complaint, whether by internet or by phone -  EVERY time the airplane noise is disturbing (which, for me, is generally when it starts early or goes late). I feel that the volume of complaints could actually matter to Port Authority and have some kind of helpful impact.

As a reminder, you can file a complaint online at:

http://www.planenoise.com/panynj/daPRAbr9/

or call it in at the Port Authority airport noise complaint hotline:
1-800-225-1071

It takes a minute or two.

so much for most of the work will end in November. There has been less but still noticeable amount of airplane noise.

I thought the airplane noise was supposed to decrease significantly after the end of last year.  We have already had several Saturdays with airplane noise and now tonight it is constant.  Does anyone know why?  Doesn't look like there is a runway closure at LGA tonight.

It was reported that La Guardia Airport is down to one runaway due  to a large pothole on runaway 13. Crews are patching up the area

Thanks for the information.  Is there a place to get this type of information?

This seems to be an unusual (newsworthy) incident that shut down a runway.  Normally the noise we get on certain Saturdays is caused by runway maintenance.  As far as I remember, Daniel Dromm got a commitment from Port Authority that they would send out information about runway maintenance changes, but then I'm not sure they ever followed through on that.  I think the only way to know is to check the webtrak website.  Even then, I don't believe they post the runway maintenance schedule until one day before. http://webtrak5.bksv.com/panynj4

I agree.  This is an unusual situation.  Regardless, it seems like the Saturday noise has been as frequent as last year despite all the promises.  I still don't understand why runway maintenance is not done overnight while the airport is closed instead of closing a runway while the airport is open.

Yes! Thank you. I forgot to submit my compliant for that day. Doing so now, and for today. Squeaky wheels...

Plane Damages Runway While Landing at LaGuardia: Sources

A plane landing at LaGuardia Airport blew out a chunk of concrete on the runway as it was coming down, and flights are now backed up as crews try to repair the runway, airport sources say.
Runway 31 is closed as workers try to repair the hole, about 8 feet by 2 feet, sources say. That leaves just one runway open at the airport.

Departing flights were delayed over an hour. Arriving flights were delayed about a half-hour.
Neal Buccino, a spokesman for Port Authority, which oversees the three New York City-area airports, said a pilot on a departing flight noticed the damage shortly after 3 p.m. and reported it.
