LAS VEGAS -- For the next six months McCarran International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the country will juggle thousands of flights with one less runway. Crews started a multimillion-dollar runway paving project Wednesday.
McCarran International Airport authorities said the $67 million renovation project shouldn't be an issue for passengers, and there shouldn't be any major delays in the project.
“We have been working very closely with our FAA tower, planners and construction crews to minimize any type of operational impact,” said Rosemary Vassiliadis, Director of Aviation, McCarran Airport.
However, some frequent flyers aren't convinced.
“Taking a runway away is not going to improve things, lets put it that way,” said Raymond Brey, frequent flyer.
