Construction at Reagan National Airport (DCA) is expected to cause traffic delays on airport roadways as work crews close lanes in front of Terminal B/C. Passengers should be mindful of changes to pick-up locations and allow extra travel time.

To avoid delays, people who normally drive to the airport should consider using Metrorail instead. The Reagan National Airport Metrorail station is a 10 minutes walk or shuttle bus ride to Terminal A (Gates 1-9) where Air Canada counters are located.

Alternatively, drivers should consider using terminal garages for pick-up or drop-off since they are outside the construction zone.

Visit the Reagan National website for the latest updates.
