Lane Closures at Reagan National

Drivers heading for the airport from the GW Parkway are likely to encounter some new delays starting next week, and they are going to be with us for quite a while.

What To Look For
The left lane of the airport entrance road will be closed next to the parking garage. On the roadway leading to and from garage parking, the left lane will be closed. The "return to airport" traffic coming from the parking garage exits will be rerouted to a new ramp just beyond the old ramp. (See it on the airport's project page.)

After the lane closures take effect -- and that's scheduled for Monday -- a construction crane will be set up within the parking garage. That will temporarily reduce the traffic entering the airport to one lane.

The 25-space bicycle rack at Garage C will be unavailable during construction, because it's too close to the work.

Alternatives
Drivers from the southbound parkway could use the second airport exit ramp to get around the construction.

Other bike parking is available around the airport. See this map.

Why
The construction is expanding the parking at Garages A, B, and C. It will add a fifth level, with 1,424 more spaces. But the $54 million project won't be completed until 2010.

Other Worries
If you're traveling the GW Parkway, don't forget to watch for construction at the Humpback Bridge, just southwest of the 14th Street Bridge. Here's a link to that project's construction page.
