Runway 25L at the Long Beach Airport will be closed starting Jan. 8 for major reconstruction, expected to take six months.
General aviation (private) aircraft will land and takeoff at Runway 25R, the secondary runway, and occasionally on the main runway, 12-30.
Runway 25L should reopen by the end of July 2018, airport officials said. When it is usable again, 25R will close for a month to install blast pads, used to stabilize the ground from jet blasts.
