Multiple Runway Closures, Friday July 8th- Sunday July 10th

The City of Southlake has been informed from the DFW Airport of multiple runway closures this weekend, starting from Friday July 8th until Sunday July 10th.

There will be closures, one at a time, of runways 13R/31L, 13L/31R, 18R/36L, and 18L/36R in order to support DFW efforts to conduct pavement condition assessments for each of its runways. 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 aircrafts that would have used the closed runway to other available runways.  The planned closure schedule is as follows:

  • Runway 13R/31L (west diagonal) is planned to be closed Friday July 8th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
  • Runway 13L/31R (east diagonal) is planned to be closed Friday July 8th from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
  • Runway 18R/36L is planned to be closed Saturday July 9th from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm.
  • Runway 18L/36R is planned to be closed Sunday, July 10th from 10:00 am to 2:00pm.
  • The weekend of July 29th through July 31st is the alternate weekend if needed to complete the work. Additional notifications will be provided if this weekend will include any runway closures.

The winds are forecast to be from the south at 10 to 15 mph with gusts as high as 25 mph for much of the period.
