Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is in Virginia situated on a total of 860 acres. The airport has a total of 44 gates: 9 in Terminal A and 35 in Terminal B/C. Today, the airfield contains three runways. Reagan National's current facilities were designed to serve 15 million passengers per year. But more than 23 million passengers traveled through the airport in 2016, setting new records and straining the existing infrastructure. In response, the airport launched Project Journey, a $1 billion investment to transform the traveler experience inside terminals, at the gates and along the roads. The result will provide passengers with greater connectivity, more shopping and dining choices and a more pleasant post-security environment. Future improvements to roadway and parking configurations will address the vehicle congestion produced by record-breaking passenger activity.
