After landing on runway 9R I was cleared to cross runway 27R and hold short on the north taxiway. I mistook the controller's directions and thought I was to cross runway 36 and hold on the taxiway to the north of that. The controller advised me that I had crossed the wrong runway. I promptly taxied off the runway I was crossing and held short on the other side. The factors, I believe, that caused this incident were my inattn to the controller's directions and my orientation in relation to runway 9R or runway 9L, as I mistook runway 27R as being the crossing runway (which was runway 36). Fatigue also may have been a factor since I was up quite early that day.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: WHILE TAXIING, THE PLT OF A C172 INADVERTENTLY CROSSED A RWY AFTER HE HAD BEEN INSTRUCTED BY THE ATCT GND CTLR TO HOLD SHORT OF THAT RWY. THE CTLR INTERVENED AFTER THE RPTR HAD ENTERED THE RWY, SO THE RPTR CONTINUED ACROSS. THE RPTR BECAME CONFUSED ABOUT DIRECTION VERSUS RWY LOCATION.
Narrative: AFTER LNDG ON RWY 9R I WAS CLRED TO CROSS RWY 27R AND HOLD SHORT ON THE N TXWY. I MISTOOK THE CTLR'S DIRECTIONS AND THOUGHT I WAS TO CROSS RWY 36 AND HOLD ON THE TXWY TO THE N OF THAT. THE CTLR ADVISED ME THAT I HAD CROSSED THE WRONG RWY. I PROMPTLY TAXIED OFF THE RWY I WAS XING AND HELD SHORT ON THE OTHER SIDE. THE FACTORS, I BELIEVE, THAT CAUSED THIS INCIDENT WERE MY INATTN TO THE CTLR'S DIRECTIONS AND MY ORIENTATION IN RELATION TO RWY 9R OR RWY 9L, AS I MISTOOK RWY 27R AS BEING THE XING RWY (WHICH WAS RWY 36). FATIGUE ALSO MAY HAVE BEEN A FACTOR SINCE I WAS UP QUITE EARLY THAT DAY.
