A spokesperson said “Skyport is hosting a Town Hall meeting to engage with the community regarding the upcoming upgrade to the Runway 30 approach lighting system at the LF Wade International Airport.

Recognizing the potential impact on nearby residents, Skyport is committed to implementing strategies to mitigate construction noise, which is expected to range between 85dBA and 135dBA depending on one’s proximity to the construction works. These efforts include careful scheduling of construction activities and employing advanced noise reduction techniques.

  • Vibratory hammering works planned for nighttime hours to minimize disturbance, from February 12 to March 2; March 16 to March 20; and May 4 to May 13.
  • Diesel impact hammering will be limited to the morning hours from 7 AM to 10 AM on selected dates in March and April, to further reduce the impact on the community.
