This fall, a $1 billion renovation will begin on the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in the effort to accommodate the increasing number of passengers. The Washington Post reported that over 23 million passengers used the airport last year and that it is the second-busiest airport in the region.
The renovation will allow for a commuter concourse on the airport’s north side as well as road improvements and a new parking garage. To make room for the new concourse, executive offices and two hangars will be leveled. Other changes that will be made include the relocation of security screening from the National Hall, or the enclosed walkway on the concourse level of Terminals B and C, to the arrival level, reported The Washington Post. The project is slated to deliver by 2021.
