Covered Walkway to Dulles Daily Garage 2 Opens

Washington Dulles International Airport opened a new covered bridge from Daily Garage 2 to the Terminal on Tuesday, May 11th.

"This newly-enclosed walkway will give our customers a direct connection to the Terminal and protect them from the elements," said President/CEO James E. Bennett of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. "Now both of our garages have convenient and enclosed walkways to the Terminal."

The $1 million project, completed by Turner Construction built a 600- foot- long canopy over the existing pedestrian bridge from Level Three of Daily Garage 2 to the Terminal.

Daily Garage 1 has an underground connection with a moving walkway that brings patrons of the Garage under the roadway entrance and the Hourly Parking Lot directly into the lower level of the Terminal.
