Reagan National Airport Runway I-19 Safety Area Enhancements and Runway 1 Hold Apron Expansion
Owner: The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA)
Location: Alexandria, Virginia
Project amount: $17 million
Originally named Washington National Airport, this airport was renamed Reagan National in 1998 to honor former U.S. President Ronald W. Reagan. Construction of the original Washington National Airport began in 1940–41 amidst some controversy, when Congress, under FDR, lifted the prohibition against constructing new airports.
The improvements under this project bring the Runway Safety Area for Runway 1-19 into compliance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) design standards. It allows the largest aircraft operating at the Airport to bypass other aircraft on the Runway 1 Hold Apron.
