Passengers traveling through Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA), will begin to notice new steel frames and structures at the gate 35X. Construction hopes to be complete by the end of 2019. The Airport Authority has worked with American Airlines due to passenger growth and have listened to customer feedback to improve the 14-gate Concourse. The concourse itself will stay consistent with Terminals B/C – i.e. the glass walls and windows, exposed beams, and large ceilings that will show panoramic views of D.C. The new concourse will have direct access to planes so buses no longer have to shuttle travelers, hold rooms, new concession stands and an American Airlines Admiral Club lounge. This construction is coming at a pivotal time in the airports history, 23 million passengers have traveled through the airport but it was designed for 15 million passengers per year. The $1 billion investment project started by Project Journey, will have the end result will have passengers see more connectivity to the main terminal, more shopping, and choices when they travel through the new space.
