There was no estimate as to when the runway was to be reopened. All traffic at the airport was being rerouted to Runway 30.

Airport officials said the North Field runways would be used for jet departures and landings. The aircraft will overfly residential areas and residents will experience unusual aircraft noise.

“The Port of Oakland apologizes in advance for any disturbances,” officials said.
