LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) - Travelers may encounter some delays at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport this weekend.

BWI will be repaving two runways this weekend. Travelers may encounter delays.

The airport is closing its two busiest runways for about 54 hours as it repaves a critical intersection. Meanwhile, a shorter little-used runway will be used for most commercial operations.

Airport officials say passengers and travelers should expect flight delays throughout the weekend and area residents may notice a shift in aircraft activity.

The maintenance project is the first such closing in more than two decades. If weather conditions prevent the work, the project will take place next weekend.
