DFW Airport Announces Runway Closure for Friday, September 20

DFW Airport has notified the City of Southlake about a runway closure that could affect air traffic in your vicinity.

Runway 17L/35R, DFW’s secondary arrival runway on its east side will be closed from Friday, September 20, 2019 at 10:00 PM through Sunday, September 21, 2019 at 4 p.m. in order to accommodate reconstruction of the NAVAIDs road within the runway safety area and other various maintenance activities within the runway environment.

What to Expect:

The shift in aircraft operations during these runway activities may affect the cities of Southlake, Grapevine, Coppell, Flower Mound, Trophy Club, and Westlake, which could experience some additional aircraft traffic, including:

  • Increased arrivals to Runway 13R, 18L, and 17C during south winds
  • Runway 13R/31L may remain open for arrivals during late night and early morning times due to the closure.

Keep in mind that surface winds don’t always dictate flow as winds above the surface and/or operational needs can affect the direction for which aircraft take off and land.
