Big changes are coming to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport this summer.

Starting June 4, officials will make more than 1,000 signage enhancements throughout the airport -- The terminals will no longer be posted as letters but as numeric designations and gates will be changed from numbers to alphanumeric designations.

For example, Terminal A will become Terminal 1 and Gates A1-A9 will be seen as Gates 1-9.

Plans for the change were announced during a Thursday board meeting, DCA officials said. 

They tell 7News the "purpose of the sign enhancements is to make it easier for passengers to find their gate, given the airport’s five-concourse layout. Gate numbers will add a letter (A, B, C, D, E) in front of them. Following this update, terminals will be numbered 1 and 2."

Although signage will be changed, airport officials say there will be no relocation of airlines, gates, etc.

Here is their timeline for the change:

  • June 4 to 5: Change all interior signs, parking signs and exterior gate identifier signs
  • June 6 to 10: Use temporary panels to patch exterior roadway signs
  • Summer/fall: Install permanent exterior roadway signs with updated font and color

Airport officials hope this change will "enhance customer wayfinding and adopt industry best practice."
