A parking garage at the Airport Hilton in Dania Beach is being torn down to make way for a new runway at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Demolition got underway this week at the two-story parking structure. The 400-room, eight-story hotel will remain open until April. It should be completely torn down by June.

The 8,000-foot south runway is expected to open later this year. Officials decided the hotel and parking garage would pose potential harm to planes using the new runway.

Airport officials say the runway will help ease delays at the airport.
