HILO, HAWAIʻI – The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation (HDOT) informs the public of nighttime runway work at the Hilo International Airport (ITO).

The primary ITO runway, 8/26, will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., March 12 and 13, and may finish sooner if weather permits. Another runway, 3/21, will be used for aircraft operations during the closure.

HDOT has scheduled this maintenance work at night to minimize impacts to air travelers and airline operations, and to reduce the project duration to the extent possible. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate the public’s understanding as the work must be done to ensure safety for all aircraft operations.
