Closure of Runway 17L/35R for 8/19 and 8/20

DFW is planning the closure of Runway 17L/35R for this Saturday, August 19, from 9:30 AM until 9:30 PM and then again on Sunday, August 20, from 9:30 AM until 4:00 PM.  This is a continuation of nighttime maintenance work on the runway  and sub-grade stabilization of the runway.

What to Expect: 

Saturday and Sunday weather forecasts show winds coming from the south at 5 to 10 mph.  When winds are southerly, aircraft take off to the south and land from north to south.  When surface winds are light and variable, takeoff and landing flow may be affected by winds above the surface and/or other operational needs.

Runway 17L/35R is used for arrivals only.  During the closure, arrivals will shift to Runways 18R and 13R on DFW’s west side and 17C on DFW’s east side.  The shifts in aircraft arrivals to other runways during the closure may affect the cities of Flower Mound, Lewisville, Southlake, Grapevine, Trophy Club, Westlake, and Coppell which could experience some additional aircraft traffic.

DFW encourage citizens with inquiries or complaints to contact them.  You may contact DFW by email at, or on the Noise Complaint Hotline, at 972-973-3192 (manned 24/7).  Follow-up response calls or emails will be provided, when requested.
