San Francisco International Airport closed its busiest runway over the weekend for repairs, and it will remain closed for the majority of September.

Runway 28L requires repair at a cost of $17.2 million, the airport said. The airport is building a new base layer of rock and cement beneath the runway surface to prevent cracks that occurred when the top layer was repaved in 2017.  The cost of repairs is being underwritten by the federal government.

Airlines adjusted their schedules for the period during which the runway will be out of service.  It will reopen on September 27.

The change affects United Airlines the most, with 45% of all traffic at the airport.  Alaska Airlines and American Airlines are also major operators at the Bay Area facility.
