Runway 18R/36L Open for Daytime Operations

Wednesday April 14 2021

DFW would like to update you regarding the runway rehabilitation work of Runway 18R/36L.  We appreciate your patience during this improtant project for DFW Airport.

We are planed to inform you that Runway 18R/36L is reopened for daytime operations as of April 14, 2021.  Please note that there is still significant work on taxiways and electrical adjacent to the runway; however, DFW is reopening the runway for day use in order to relieve closure efforst for local communities and for our airline partners.  Runway 18R/36L's use will be limited by closures of some runway exit taxiway that are stil closed for reconstruction.  As a result, arriving aircraft will remain on the runway longer to be able to exit, limiting the use of the runway.  So, while some air traffic will shift back to this runway when it reopened, you may still experience flights from air traffic that are using other runways until the runway is avilable at full capacity.  Finally, Runway 18R/36L will be closed for night work from 10pm to 8 am until May 4th, at which time the night closures will be reduced from 11pm to 7am.

We encourage you to continue to use DFW resources to view near real-time flights at  We've recently updated our website, however, you can still access noise information at  As always, residents with inquiries or comments should contact DFW Airport by email at, or on the Noise Complaint Hotline, at 972-973-3192 (manned 24/7).
