Hey guys.
I remember reading in a post a few days ago that LGA closes runway 13-31 on the weekends for repavement.
Is this true?
I plan on doing some spotting maybe this week, and 04 would be the best spot for me.
In advance, thanks for the help! :)

I can't access the PANYNJ LGA site right now, but there's a PDF with all the information and dates you'll need. They're installing an arrestor bed at the end of runway 31, so 13/31 is scheduled to be closed for 36 hours every weekend from Saturday 0001 to Sunday 0600 through the end of August.

So either way the winds blow, Planeview Park's the place to be. :)

one of the runways will definately be closed for most of saturday and sunday morning. most likely it will be 13/31 this weekend as well... making 4 arrivals or 22 departures very possible...
