Flatiron under Contract for $125 Million Runway Reconstruction Project at Dallas Love Field (DAL)

Flatiron is under contract with the City of Dallas for a $125 million runway reconstruction project for Love Field’s (DAL) Runway 13R-31L, the longer of the airport’s parallel runways. Flatiron anticipates beginning the bid-build project this spring and completing in the summer of 2022.

The project builds on Flatiron’s extensive aviation construction experience at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and at airports in Houston, Colorado Springs, Denver, San Diego and San Francisco.

The project will also enhance airfield safety and efficiencies.

A significant challenge on the reconstruction project will be the ambitious schedule to complete the 8,800-foot long, Runway 13R-31L which is DAL’s main commercial runway. In 1990, the runway received a significant concrete overlay, that has outlived its effective design life.

The project will also enhance airfield safety and efficiencies. Planned improvements include:

  • Removing existing Runway 13R-31L and replacing pavement in 37.5-foot wide passes, 17” thick.
  • Rebuilding portions of nearby Taxiway C.
  • Constructing a new Taxiway T that will allow Southwest Airlines easier access to airfields, hangars and terminals.
  • Installing a new Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) system.
  • Upgrading drainage and electrical infrastructure.

Throughout the project, the Flatiron team will work closely with the Love Field team and other stakeholders to seek innovative solutions to achieve cost efficiencies and aggressive project schedules.

In keeping with Flatiron’s commitment to innovation and sustainability, portions of the existing concrete will be converted into Recycled Concrete Aggregate Base Course (P-219) and reused on the project.

This project reinforces Flatiron’s strong presence in Texas—adding to 2020 wins at Lake Ralph Hall Reservoir valued at $70 million and George Bush Intercontinental Airport valued at $77 million.
