DFW would like to inform you of the upcoming runway rehabilitation project that could affect air traffic in your vicinity. DFW will fully close Runway 17R/35L for extensive rehabilitation work beginning on August 15, 2023 and continuing until Early Summer 2024. Runway 17R/35L is the third runway to be rehabilitated as part of DFW Airport’s 10-year Infrastructure Rehabilitation program to address runways and taxiways that will need significant rehabilitation work. The 13,400 foot runway was built in 1974 and after 48 years is in critical need of rehabilitation. Runway 17R/35L is DFW’s primary east-side departure runway handling approximately 50% of DFW’s daily departures.
