DFW Airport Announces Weekend Closure of Runway 18R/36L

DFW_airpot-300x300The City of Southlake has received the following information from the DFW Noise Compatibility Office: 

DFW plans to close Runway 18R/36L at 10:45PM, Friday, 14 November, through 4PM, Sunday, 16 November. This period will be used to perform scheduled maintenance projects such as upgrades to runway lighting and signage, FAA electrical and airfield systems maintenance and construction, pavement repair and other necessary maintenance activities.   Aircraft that would have used the runway during the closure period will be dispersed among the operational runways.

The National Weather Service currently forecasts north winds for this weekend from about 7AM Saturday 15 November through and beyond 4PM Sunday when Runway 18R/36L will reopen.  Depending upon air traffic requirements it is possible that the FAA will need to use Runway 13R/31L, the west diagonal runway, for jet departures.

More information about the Airport’s planned runway work can be found on DFWAirport.com.
