Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Aviation Crossroads: Challenges in a Changing World


The expansion of the Main Terminal at Dulles International Airport was anticipated and planned for during the original construction of the building in 1962. The most difficult portions of the expansion will be the removal and reconstruction of the entrance ramps. Great consideration was given to the phasing and supervision of this mega project. Technological improvements in concrete forming and placement will be taken advantage of to produce the same unique shapes of the past.
