Damaged runway at LaGuardia Airport reopens

NEW YORK (AP) — A runway at LaGuardia Airport has reopened after emergency crews fixed a section of it that was damaged.

The disruption caused flight delays of over an hour at the New York airport Wednesday night as planes got backed up.

Officials say a departing aircraft reported seeing pavement damage on the runway earlier that afternoon.

The runway reopened at about 8 p.m. after workers repaired the surface layer of a section of pavement.

Residual delays at the airport are expected through the night.
