CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The longest runway at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is expected to return to service in October and the City of Villa Hills wants residents to know that planes will once again be flying over the city.

CVG’s only east/west runway has been closed for major rehab since March 2021.

The closure meant most air traffic was moved to other runways which caused a temporary increase in noise to the north and south of the airport.

The runway reopening means that the communities to the east and west of the airport, including Villa Hills and Crescent Springs, may notice an increase in noise due to air traffic.
