South Hill residents will notice more flights over their neighborhood through the end of September.

Spokane International Airport closed its primary runway Sunday for construction work, according to the Spokesman-Review, meaning South Hill residents will notice more flights over their neighborhoods until late September when the runway reopens.

During the closure, flights are using the airport’s secondary runway, which requires planes to fly in more of an east-west direction, adding up to additional aircraft over South Hill neighborhoods.

The runway construction is part of a larger project involving the airport’s taxiways, which is expected to be complete in November.
