Recent Increase in Air Traffic over Somerville


Recently, the City of Somerville has received a large volume of calls, complaints and questions from residents about the unacceptably low, loud and frequent airplane noise over Somerville. After making inquiries to our Legislative Delegation, we learned that a resurfacing project on one of Logan Airport’s two international runways is currently underway. Due to this project, an alternate runway has international flights flying over Malden, Medford and Somerville. The project began in early May and will continue through the month of June and is expected to be completed (weather permitting) by the beginning of July. We have been in touch with MassPort, who is overseeing the project and they recommend that residents call them at 617-561-3333 as they are interested in hearing from residents directly.
