DEN Strange Runways Used

Recently I have noticed 34L being used heavily, infact, that is the only active arrival runway right now and has been for the past 2-3 hours. Runway 8 is currently the only active departure runway for the last 2-3 hours. Any reason for this? Why all of sudden 34L being used for arrivals. I got some amazing approach shots today, and they were coming in one after another since that was the only runway being used. Why not utilize all four of the runways in that direction? I imagine some delays.

That's a loooong taxi to the terminal. Could be thunderstorms along the 35 glide paths.

Goodness, that is strange. Want to hear even stranger? Around 9.30, only runway 25 was being used for landings and 35L for departures. What is going on to make them do this?

On a side note, you still in Arkansas Eric?

Dunno how rare this is, but also when Eric and I were up there, 17R was being used for arrivals, along with 16R and 16L for a short time.

Looking at the DEN items, it looks like there is some major work going on with the LOC's and ALS. If there was weather in the approach paths for the runways and a/c were forced to perform an instrument approach, then 16R/34L is about the only fully functional instrument runway available. I don't know what the deal is, but I see that the ILS's at FTG are also being pulled from service for a few hours. Interesting.
Side note, there is the NOTAM for Aurora Airpark being closed for good (01V) - Sad.
