PHOENIX -- Travelers might want to plan for delays if they’re flying in and out of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport this weekend.

The airport will be closing its north runway from 11 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday for maintenance work. The two runways on the south side of the airport will be used for arrivals and departures.

There could be delays as long as 25 minutes during peak times, which are usually between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., and 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Passengers who don’t have a lot of time in between connections are being advised to contact their airline if they are concerned about making their connecting flight.
