Reagan National DCA Airport Overview

It is situated on GW Memorial Parkway and is connected to US Rt 1 (Jefferson Davis Hwy) by airport viaduct (State 233); Interstate Hwy 395 is just north of DCA Airport and accessible by GW Parkway and Route 1.

Present and future Airport developments: In June 2015, 'Air Alliance' was awarded a $75M conract for the long-term redevelopment program of Terminal B/C over the next few years. Aside from design improvements for better passenger service & efficiency, it will provide contact gate facilities, & secure connection between the concourses. A new concourse is to replace the 14 hardstands at airport's north side & relocate security checkpoints for seemless access to the gate areas without the need of re-screening .
