The City of Southlake has received the following information from DFW Airport Noise Office concerning two runway closures.
The first closure is a weekend closure of Runway 18R/36L, which is scheduled to be closed for maintenance from 10 p.m. Friday, September 18th through 4:00 p.m. Sunday, September 20th. This closure is to accommodate work on Runway 36L’s Instrument Landing System (ILS) components and inspections requiring access to the runway environment.
The second is a six week closure of Runway 17R/35L which is scheduled to be closed from 10:00 p.m. on Sunday September 20th until 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 31st. This closure is to support complete replacement and expansion of runway blast pads and other activities within the runway environment.
The forecast for weather during these periods is not yet available from the National Weather Service. However, as with all such maintenance closures, the flights that would have used the closed runway will be dispersed among the remaining, operational runways. This can result in additional flights on runways that already receive flights, extension of hours of use of these runway as well as distribution of flights to runways that are not typically used for jet departures. For example, any north flow winds during this period could require the use of Runway 31L to accommodate jet departures.
More information about the Airport’s planned runway work as well as a graphic depicting the location of the closed runway is available on DFW’s website at http://www.dfwairport.com/inthecommunity/aircraft_noise.php.
