Reagan National's current facilities were designed to serve 15 million passengers per year. But more than 23 million passengers traveled through the airport in 2016, setting new records and straining the existing infrastructure. In response, the airport launched Project Journey, a $1 billion investment to transform the traveler experience inside terminals, at the gates and along the roads. The end result will provide passengers with greater connectivity, more shopping and dining choices and a more pleasant post-security environment. Future improvements to roadway and parking configurations will address the vehicle congestion produced by record-breaking passenger activity.

  • The 'New Concourse' that is being built to help create a better passenger experience by ending busing form Gate 35X
  • The 'New Security Checkpoints' which are being built to alleviate passenger congestion by moving security checkpoints and incorporating National Hall into a connected, post-security environment
  • Challenges and Solutions to help keep the airport active throughout Project Journey
