Now Boarding for the DFW Airport
Technical Tour!

Join WTS as we tour the DFW Airport 17C-Center project.  The airport began reconstructing one of its busiest runways earlier this year. 
DFW will use new construction techniques and take advantage of seasonal air traffic patterns to reduce construction time. 

The project will include the installation of new technologies, including an updated pavement sensor system for measuring weather impacts and enhanced in-pavement lighting, which improves the safety of the runway and connecting taxiways. In addition, crews will also build connected portions of the planned Perimeter Taxiway for the northeast side of the Airport.

The cost of the project will total about $135 million. DFW received an Airport Improvement Program grant from the FAA totaling about $49.5 million for the runway work.

Built in 1984, Runway 17-Center/35-Center handles more arrivals than any other runway at DFW.
