BWI closing two runways to repave; expect delays

      BWI will be repaving two runways this weekend. Travelers may encounter delays.

      LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) - Travelers may encounter some delays at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport this weekend.

      The airport is closing its two busiest runways for about 54 hours as it repaves a critical intersection. Meanwhile, a shorter little-used runway will be used for most commercial operations.

      Airport officials say passengers and travelers should expect flight delays throughout the weekend and area residents may notice a shift in aircraft activity.

      The maintenance project is the first such closing in more than two decades. If weather conditions prevent the work, the project will take place next weekend.
