Increased Noise over Southlake Expected due to Delay in Airport Construction

Due to weather delays, the runway construction project at DFW airport will not be complete by Saturday, September 22nd as originally scheduled.

According to officials at DFW Airport, the project won’t be complete until the end of next week (week of 9/24).  DFW has also indicated that northeast winds are forecast for the entire day Sunday (9/23) meaning the west diagonal runway will be utilized once again for jet departures.  Southlake residents will notice a noise increase on Sunday as the planes leave the metroplex.  Winds are expected to return to normal Monday morning.

Residents with specific questions about this temporary situation are asked to call the Airport’s Noise Hotline at 972-973-3192.
