Incursion 4

Runway Incursion Hazard Area - 4

When landing to the south on Runway 20L, pilots are sometimes directed by ATC to sidestep to the parallel runway, Runway 20R. During this procedure, pilots risk the chance of confusing Taxiway Alpha with Runway 20R, because Runway 20R threshold is about 2,000 feet beyond Runway 20L's pavement edge. Taxiway Alpha is the same length as 20L and is constructed of concrete similar in color to Runway 20L, but contrasting in color to the asphalt of Runway 20R.
