ARLINGTON, Va. – Morning pick-ups at Reagan National Airport could get a little tricky as a large-scale improvement project begins.
In the short term, Project Journey will lead to lane closures in front of the departures area of Terminals B and C from midnight until 9 a.m. each day. In the long term, about $1 billion dollars will be invested in upgrading the facility.
Improvements include adding the 2 separate 50,000 sq. ft. areas to make more room for security checkpoints. There will also be a new permanent terminal for 14 planes that will replace the current 35X gate which requires travelers to hop on a bus and battle the elements in order to board some planes at the airport.
Construction is expected to last through 2021. You can sign up for updates on the construction process by clicking here.
