FHWA's Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center
The Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA's) Office of Research, Development, and Technology (RD&T) is located at the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC), a federally owned and operated national research facility in McLean, VA. The center houses more than 16 laboratories, support facilities, and data sets; and conducts applied and exploratory advanced research in vehicle-highway interaction, nanotechnology, and a host of other types of transportation research in safety, pavements, highway structures and bridges, human-centered systems, operations, and intelligent transportation systems, and materials.
The tour will visit several laboratories at the research center. The laboratories at the center provide a vital resource for advancing the body of knowledge that has been created and developed by our researchers.
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport
The Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport tour will start in the historic Terminal A lobby of the original 1941 terminal building with a presentation on Project Journey, the planned $1 billion, multi‐year capital improvement project that will transform the passenger experience at Reagan National Airport. Project Journey includes construction of two new security checkpoints that will connect the concourse level of Terminal B/C to airline gate areas and build-out of an enclosed concourse with jet bridges to replace the 14 outdoor gates currently serviced by buses from Gate 35X. The project started in the summer of 2017, and multiple areas will be under construction during the summer of 2019. After the presentation, participants will tour the B/C Concourse, with observations of the construction of the new security checkpoint buildings and the concourse extension.
