Portland Jetport paving project.

The main runway at Portland International Jetport re-opened Friday, three days ahead of schedule, after a paving project.

During the closure, flights were using a shorter runway and some had to be diverted during times of poor visibility.

The 13.7 million dollar project began April 18 and included repaving the 7,200-foot runway and installing new LED lighting.
