Runway construction likely to mean increased noise
JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska - Residents near Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson may notice heightened noise levels as maintenance activities require the temporary closure of the runway that runs east to west. The east-to-west runway is used in more than twothirds of JBER flights as it allows for the least noise impact on the greater Anchorage community.
As with roadways across the state, the Alaska climate often accelerates damage to airfield
surfaces. The JBER airfield has only a four-month period, June through September, to conduct
airfield runway, taxiway and ramp repair.
The maintenance should be completed by July 18 and is expected to return the noise levels
back to the pre-maintenance standard. Please contact the JBER Public Affairs office at 552-JETS (5387) or email@example.com if you have further questions.
People Center Office closure
Effective 19 Dec 2013, many organizations within the People Center, Bldg. 8517 will close at noon for training on the third Thursday of every month. The ID card issue and Travel Center, including personal property and passenger travel will remain open as normal. If you have any specific questions about hours of operations please contact the appropriate agency.
