getting arrested in protest usually attracts attention. those who want to should go for it.
Woken up by airplane noise at about 5:45am and the noise hasn't stopped since.  I wish we could shut the airport done for a couple of hours to protest against the noise.  If this happened a couple of times a year it wouldn't bother me, but the current situation is really agitating to me.

I can't stand it either, but I'm sure that if they could send the planes over some other path safely and efficiently they would definitely do so to stop the complaints. We live ~1 mile as the crow flies from an airport, it's just going to happen when runway/taxiway maintenance needs to be done. Hopefully it ends at soon when they are done with the rework. Is there any idea about when the ETR is for these maintenance windows?

I'm sure it's happening from 06:00 Saturday until 06:00-12:00 Sunday due to less air traffic on weekends. Most likely this is also contributing to it taking so much time since they have to wind up the maintenance project and wind it down over the course of basically 24-30 hour windows. Probably also why they can't just do it from like 1AM-5AM, not a long enough window to actually get anything done.

Expecting it to end because we're complaining, that's just a pipe dream if there's no other option. Try going over to the plaza where Petco, RiteAid, and Cannelle are during the day. I don't know how those people can stand living there with the planes landing over that strip all day. In an ironic twist, it appears looking at google maps there's a Lexington Hearing and Speech center catercorner from that plaza to the Northwest. I wonder if "can you hear the planes" is part of some testing strategy there.

"there's a Lexington Hearing and Speech center" ... isn't that the school for the deaf?

I have no idea what it is, didn't research it. I just saw the name of it labeled on google maps.

Again this morning -the first plane started at 6am sharp.  I wonder if this is our new normal?  Sporadically in the past we'd receive a heads-up about the change in flight path... But I have not seen that for quite some time..

I just sent emails to Jose Peralta and Daniel Dromm asking if this runway closure on Saturdays is temporary or permanent.  Perhaps others could contact them as well.

So now it's EVERY WEEKEND AGAIN? it's a quality of life issue and complaining on that little port authority form does nothing apparently. To those who say to move if you don't like it must not live directly under the path (76/77). It's like they're landing in your living room. We moved her 5 years ago to GET AWAY from the noise of the city and was peaceful for the first three years and now every weekend you can't sleep or even relax its so loud. Why not do it during weekday when most people are at work. All these complaints seen to fall on deaf ears and I'm sick of it.

The Webtrak site claims that it's for maintenance on runway 13/31 (which is the one that causes all the noise when it's closed) http://webtrak5.bksv.com/panynj4

Runway 13/31 will be closed from 6/18/16 12:01 AM to 6/19/16 12:00 PM, for runway maintenance work, subject to air traffic needs and weather conditions.

I believe Dromm got the Port Authority to agree to send emails or announcements out prior to maintenance work being done, but obviously they never managed to do this.  It would be extremely easy to create an email mailing list for this purpose but it seems they refuse to do so.  And it's not like this would even help with the noise -- it would only mitigate the surprise factor.

Thanks for letting us know this will be for most of the weekend. The only solution I have come up with is to run away from the neighborhood...begging my pals in Brooklyn and Manhattan to let me hang out with them...away from the nightmare noise.

I thought it meant noon on Sunday.  (I believe 12 pm means noon.) And the maintenance schedule always shows that time frame, but the noise rarely goes into Sunday at all.  Last weekend it showed the same schedule, but as far as I remember, when I returned from a trip out of town on Saturday evening around 7 pm, there was no more noise at that time.

I'm only thinking that because they specify 12:01am so I'm thinking 12:00pm would be one minute earlier? Either way, it's too much!
