Title: 11 - Airports

Chapter: 16 - General Rules and Regulations

Section: 20 - Airport closure

The airport manager is directed and authorized to close the airports, or portions thereof, or suspend operations related to the landing, takeoff or taxiing of aircraft during any period in which he determines that such operations or their continuance would be hazardous. Causes for such closure could include, but would not be limited to, adverse weather conditions, runway maintenance or repairs, runway obstacles, fire, aircraft or other accident. Any such closure shall be effective only during such time as there is placed at each end of each runway so closed, a letter "X," the arms of which are at least twenty feet long and two feet wide, and so colored as to contrast with the background or other surface. The airport manager shall immediately notify the FAA flight service station and issue a notice to airmen (NOTAM) advising of the closure.
