Dallas Executive Airport runway reconstruction to start in March
Dallas Executive Airport’s longest runway will get a facelift starting March 9. Runway13-31 will be reconstructed to provide a safer and longer takeoff run for departures and allow higher altitude departures and arrivals, said Airport Manager Darrell Phillips.
“Part of the reconstruction will involve adding displace thresholds at both ends of the runway,” Phillips said.” Runway Protective Zones will be brought closer to the center of the airport, allowing aircraft to approach at a higher altitude and provide more of a mid-field liftoff,” he said.
Besides being the longest, Runway 13-31 is the most used by corporate jets based at Dallas Executive. Airport staff has met with neighbors and airport tenants to inform them of the reconstruction plans. Phase 1 of the reconstruction is expected to be completed by December 2015.
