DFW_airpot-300x300DFW plans to close Runway 18L/36R at 10:45PM, Friday, 27 March, through 6PM, Saturday, 28 March. This period will be used to upgrade the runway distance remaining signs.   Aircraft that would have used the runway during the closure period will be dispersed among the operational runways.   The National Weather Service currently forecasts variable winds during the 19 hour maintenance closure period with no significant north winds during the period. However, if this forecast is not valid and significant north winds do occur, the FAA may need to use Runway 13R/31L, the west diagonal runway, for jet departures.

Following this weekend, and over the next two weeks there will be no scheduled daytime runway closures. Below is the tentative schedule for closures for necessary pavement, electrical, navigation aids, signage, drainage, lighting and other infrastructure repair, upgrade and maintenance activities:

April 18-19 Runway 18L/36R
April 25-26 Runway 18L/36R
May 2-3 Runway 18L/36R
May 9-10 Runway 17L/35R
