Major changes coming to Reagan National Airport as multi-year, $1 billion project begins


Construction began Monday on Project Journey, a multi-year, $1 billion project that will make a number of additions at Reagan National Airport.

The airport is adding a new concourse with 14 new gates for regional jets and will construct 28 new security lanes to remove the existing checkpoints.

As part of the construction, the airport’s cell lot will close. Passengers should notice a major shift at terminals B and C as shuttle bus stops have shifted and locations for pickups and drop-offs are adjusted.

Passengers are being asked to follow signs inside the ticketing level and also curbside to reach the new shuttle bus pickup area. The work will also close a section of the ticketing level.

The changes are enough that it may lead to the need to give yourself extra time if you are flying in and out of the airport.

The entire construction job is scheduled to be completed in about three years.
