Bradley International Airport relying on trucks for jet fuel after crucial pipeline shut down
Bradley International Airport is relying on trucks to haul in jet fuel because a crucial pipeline was shut down.
Officials say the pipeline was shut down after it was impacted by the remnants of Hurricane Ida. While repairs are underway, the airport now requires fuel to be trucked in.
Airport officials say, at this point, there has been no impact on flights.
Back on Sept. 2, it found that heavy rain had exposed its 12-inch refined products pipeline in Cromwell.
There is no word yet on when the pipeline will be restarted.
