A $2 billion project to rehabilitate and expand Washington, D.C., airports is under way. No less that 159 contracts comprise the improvement project, which cannot interfere with the day-to-day operations of the airports--Washington National Airport and Dulles International Airport. The centerpiece of National's modernization is a new 35-gate terminal building. Other project components include construction of a new air traffic control tower, roadways, and parking facilities. At Dulles, the goal is to keep pace with increasing passenger demand. Currently serving 12 million passengers annually, Dulles is projected to serve 55 million at build-out. Dulles' expansion includes construction of two additional runways, three 44-gate midfield concourses, and two additional wings on either end of the current terminal. This articles describes the design, construction, scheduling, and cost of these two airport projects.
