Runway 13R/31L Closure: September 16 and 17

DFW is planning the closure of Runway 13R/31L for Saturday, September 16, from 9:30 AM until 10:00 PM, and then Sunday, September 17, from 9:30 AM until 4:30 PM.  This is to accommodate work on the runway involving electrical upgrades.

What to Expect: 

Saturday and Sunday weather forecasts show winds coming from the south at 5 to 15 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 13R/31L is used as a secondary arrival runway during South Flow and as a secondary departure runway during North Flow.  During the closure, arrivals will shift to Runways 18R on DFW’s west side and 17C and 17L on DFW’s east side.  The shifts in aircraft arrivals to other runways during the closure may affect the cities of Flower Mound, Lewisville, Coppell, Southlake, Grapevine, Trophy Club and Westlake, which could experience some additional aircraft traffic.

The DFW Airport encourage citizens with inquiries or complaints to contact them.  You may contact them 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.
