Study: Travel Times To D.C.-Area Airports Increasing

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new study shows that driving to each of the airports in the Washington region takes longer than it did eight years ago.

The Washington Examiner reports that the study by the National Capitol Region Transportation Planning Board examined travel times from more than 15 residential or business hubs to the region’s three major airports.

In most cases, highway travel times during peak hours had increased since 2003. Traffic congestion was blamed for the longer trips.

For example, the travel time from Tysons Corner in northern Virginia to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport increased by nearly 20 minutes, to 44 minutes total.

The study also looked at travel time to Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
