New runway construction at major U.S. airports is not only about landing more airplanes, it's about moving communities, spanning or moving interstate highways, and hauling a lot of soil. As communities have grown nearer to urban airports, adding more capacity to airside operations, especially new runway projects, has become increasingly expensive and technically challenging. This article covers many of the major projects that are underway, or are about to be, within the United States.
