Going on vacation is almost always fun, but sometimes the traveling process can be quite painful. That’s been true for many travelers recently who have had flights either delayed or cancelled due to issues with the airline industry. Luckily DFW travelers are about to get some relief, as the main runway at Dallas Love Field Airport has been reopened after 14 months of construction.

On Tuesday, Dallas Love Field Airport reopened their main runway after delays forced the project to run longer than expected. Over the last 14 months, the airport runway project faced construction slowdowns from ice storms last winter, rainy weather, supply and labor shortages as well as unexpected utility work. Making things worse, the construction forced commercial jets to fly closer to neighborhoods, leading to many complaints.

Luckily, that is now over as the newly constructed runway will be ready for what is expected to be the busiest travel weekend of the year. According to Dallas Morning News, 56,670 possible passengers are expected at Love Field on Friday. While the runway closure won’t cause delays anymore, the airlines will likely find something else to cause issue.
