NEW YORK (AP) -- The main runway at New York's John F. Kennedy International is reopening after four months of repairs.
It will reopen officially on Tuesday at an 11 a.m. EDT ceremony. It has been repaved with concrete instead of less-durable asphalt and widened to accommodate today's bigger planes.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which manages the three main New York area airports, says the massive construction project ended within its $376 million budget.
