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 nightly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., April 9 to 12, and may finish sooner, weather permitting. During the closure, the alternate runway, 3/21, will be used for aircraft operations.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate the public’s understanding as the work must be done to ensure safety for all aircraft operations.
