Tips for a Better Journey

How to navigate around construction at Reagan National Airport


Project Journey construction has reduced lane capacity on the Arrivals (lower level) roadway at Terminal B/C, which can create backups on other airport roads during busy travel periods. Learn more on how to navigate the airport during construction.



  • Don't drive in circles!
  • Use wayfinding apps, such as Waze and Google Maps.
  • Select your specific destination (terminal, airline, parking).

  • Tune in from your car while on airport property.
  • Get the latest roadway driving tips.

Slow down! Watch for: 

  • Construction signs
  • Pedestrians
  • Police directing traffic

  • Reserve parking online in advance.
  • On day of travel, proceed directly to your selected parking area.
  • From Garage A, take elevator to lowest floor and walk indoors to Terminal A.
  • From Garage B or C, walk indoors to Terminal B/C from Level 2.

Know where to find your ride: 

  • Ticketing (3rd floor): Rental car/parking, hotel shuttles, SuperShuttle, ride app pickup
  • National Hall (2nd floor): Metro, Terminal Garages
  • Baggage Claim (1st floor): Taxi, ride app pickup, private vehicles

The Ticketing level is usually less congested after 8 p.m., making it a good option for pick-up.
