DFW Commences Rehabilitation Work on Runway 17R/35L

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has commenced rehabilitation work on Runway 17R/35L as part of its ongoing airfield capital improvement programme.

To enable this work to take place, the runway has been closed since 15 August and is scheduled to reopen in phases from summer 2024.

This is DFW’s third runway to undergo complete rehabilitation in the past four years. By replacing ageing airside infrastructure, this work aims to enhance operational efficiency and maintain safety standards.

The project scope includes extending the structural life of the runway, enhancing current and future performance and reducing operational impacts and maintenance costs.

Once complete, the renovated runway will feature new lighting, improved signs and updates to its deicing infrastructure.

Additionally, the runway’s pavement will be reconstructed with an asphalt overlay, drainage improvements, and new electrical infrastructure.

The closure is not expected to impact DFW’s flight operations, as aircraft traffic will be moved to its six other runways on the east and west airfields.
