Closure of Runways 17C/35C and Runway 17R/35L on Saturday June 18th

DFW Airport has provided the following information about its runway operations for this Saturday, June 18th.

On Saturday, June 18th, 2016, from 9:30 AM-7:30 PM, the DFW Airport will be closing Runways 17C/35C and Runway 17R/35L for necessary maintenance.

DFW Airport is planning necessary maintenance closures of Runways 17C/35C and Runway 17R/35L, one at a time, for this Saturday, June 18th.  The closure period is planned for 9:30AM until 7:30PM.  The planned closures are necessary to support efforts to conduct a pavement condition assessment.  These assessments are conducted periodically to determine the structure soundness of the runway pavement which is essential to long term maintenance and rehabilitation schedules for the airfield.  During the closure, the FAA must necessarily move aircraft that would have used the closed runway to other available runways.  The planned closure schedule is as follows:

  • Runway 17C/35C is planned to be closed from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm
  • Runway 17R/35L is planned to be closed from 2:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
