Construction of New Security Checkpoints and a New 14-Gate Concourse is in full swing at Reagan National Airport. During the current phase of construction, traffic backups have become more common as vehicles navigate narrowed roadways near the work zone. The airport is taking measures to keep traffic moving, while advising travelers to minimize trips on airport roads to avoid delays.
Additionally, an extended grace period of up to 60 minutes in Terminal Garages encourages drivers to drop off, pick up or wait in garage facilities instead of clogging airport roads near the construction zone. Using Terminal Garages is often faster than waiting in traffic to drive to the terminal, and walkways provide an easy connection to all terminals.
