COURSES ES 251-252-TRANSPORTATION, PROJECT E. TOPICS ON AIRPORT ACCESS IN THE WASHINGTON METROPOLITAN AREA, 1976
This document contains four articles concerned with planning and engineering concepts related to airport access. Section A analyzes the impact of the Washington National Airport Metro Stop on the entire system. Section B presents a staged recommendation for providing access to Dulles airport, employing several modes. Section C surveys the state-of-the-art of rapid rail vehicles and examines them for their applicability to airport access in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Section D presents three approaches to solving the problem of providing pedestrian access between National Airport Metro Stop and the Airport itself. The design parameters and costs of each component of the system are explored in brief, and recommendations for staging are coordinated with estimated demand.
