24/7 Work to Narrow Traffic Flow Inside Terminal B/C Pedestrian Bridges

  • On or about February 21, construction crews will build a protective walkway in the pedestrian bridges connecting Terminal B/C and the Metro station.
  • The center walkway within the pedestrian bridges will be closed.
  • Moving walkways on the bridges will be turned off, and pedestrians will be routed through narrower paths to enter and exit the terminal.
  • To keep people moving within the narrowed space, signs will direct traffic flow.

Temporary Reduction of Exit Doors from Terminal B/C Bag Claim (Lower) Level

  • On or about Monday, January 7, construction crews will begin closing exit doors at the ends of the Terminal B/C Baggage Claim (lower) Level.

About Project Journey

When Project Journey is completed in 2021, two new 50,000-square-foot security checkpoint buildings will replace three smaller checkpoints currently serving Terminal B/C – increasing the post-security space to include all of National Hall and its premier shops and restaurants for ticketed travelers. In addition, a new 14-gate concourse will replace Gate 35X – ending the need for travelers to ride buses to board regional jets parked outside. Concourse amenities will include jetbridges, holdrooms, concessions and an American Airlines Admirals Club lounge.
