Dulles receives $35 million to support new terminal construction

Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner announced $35 million in federal funding for expansion and improvements to Dulles International Airport.

The funding will support construction of a 14-gate, 400,000 sq ft terminal.

The terminal will include a direct connection to the Aerotrain to move passengers throughout the airport with an indirect connection to the Metro’s Silver Line at Dulles.

This round of funding is in addition to previous announcements of $49.6 million in 2022 and $20 million in 2023 and made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to improve air travel, roads, bridges, broadband, and water infrastructure.

In a joint statement, the Senators said, “Dulles Airport is a beacon for both domestic and international flights, and has expanded rapidly over the past decade. This funding will improve travel for passengers and ensure that the airport stays functional and safe while continuing to meet flight demands.”
