TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Reconstruction work on the main runway at Tulsa International Airport is set to resume next week.

Airport officials say it's the third phase of a $55 million project to completely reconstruct the airport's nearly 10,000 feet of runway. It was last reconstructed 30 years ago.

Airport officials say commercial flights will operate on the airport's crosswind runway. Officials say passengers may see delays or cancellations when weather conditions — including high winds and low visibility — prohibit the use of the crosswind runway.

The airport anticipates the project to end in June.

The last phase of the reconstruction is scheduled for 2014.
