Overnight Work To Cause Noise At Reagan National

Many of the approach lights are on a pier that juts into the Potomac River, and over the next 90 days, crews will be driving piles to support the upgraded lights.

The work will be happening in the overnight hours, between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. to avoid interfering with the airport's daily flight schedule.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority says workers will try to limit noise from the project when possible, but anyone who's been near a construction site knows pile driving can be quite noisy, and the authority says people living in riverside communities along the Potomac may hear some of the work.
