• 15L/33R Runway Resurfacing (Spring 2019)

    We will be resurfacing runway 15L/33R, one of two north/south runways at Toronto Pearson. Work is anticipated to begin as early as April 3, 2019. Excluding any unforeseen delays, the resurfacing project is expected to be completed in June 2019. We have scheduled the work for overnight off-peak hours (10 p.m. to 6 a.m.) when flight traffic is lowest.

    Project Details

    This project will consist of electrical work and the milling and resurfacing of runway 15L/33R to keep the surface in top condition and ensure continued safe operations. Because 15L/33R intersects with east/west Runway 05/23, this project will briefly limit the availability of 05/23 and may also affect nighttime preferential runways.

    We recognize that resurfacing will create a temporary impact for some residents due to aircraft noise and we apologize for any inconvenience that this causes. If you have concerns about aircraft noise, they can be directed to the GTAA’s Noise Office at 416-247-7682 or to the online noise complaint form.

    More information on noise management can be found on the Noise Office webpage, and regular updates are available on Twitter @TorontoPearson or our community newsletter, Checking In.
