Dulles Airport (IAD) Garage 1 Walkway Closure

The pedestrian walkway connecting Parking Garage 1 and the Main Terminal will be closed for an extended period of time. To accommodate passengers, customer access between Parking Garage 1 and the Main Terminal will be provided by shuttle buses, with service running on an accelerated schedule for the duration of the construction. Shuttle buses stops are located at the west, center and east of Parking Garage 1 and can be accessed via elevators or stairs.

Construction notification and alerts will be issued to inform the public of the closure, re-opening and progress as appropriate. Updates will be distributed via e-mail and posted on the Twitter account. Please fill out the email Alerts Sign Up Form and follow @DullesMetrorail to receive updates.

The future Dulles Airport station, to be located opposite the terminal along the face of Parking Garage 1, will serve the Washington Dulles International Airport. Phase 2 construction is expected to be complete within the next five years. Opening dates are to be determined by the Metropolitan Washington Area Transit Authority.
