Project Name: 14/32 Commuter Aircraft Runway Boston Logan
Year in Operation: 2006
Sector: Transportation
Subsector: Transportation Terminal, Airport
Status: In Operation
Type: New Facility
Description: A controversial airside project at Boston Logan airport: construction of the new 14/32 5,000ft commuter aircraft runway (which had been planned since 1973). The new runway reduces the need for the existing runway 15L-33R, which, at only 2,557ft (779m), is perhaps the shortest hard-surface runway at any major airport in the United States.
Delivery Method as described in the country where it's located: Design Bid Build
Is the project still active: Yes
Comments: The new runway has significantly reduced congestion at the airport by allowing 75,000 more flights each year, effectively doubling the number handled.
