9-foot statue of Reagan to be unveiled at airport; travelers warned of delays during ceremony
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) ' More than a decade after it was officially renamed, a nine-foot statue honoring former president Ronald Reagan will be unveiled at the airport that now bears his name.
The Virginia airport just outside the nation's capital has borne Reagan's name since 1998, following the passage of Congressional legislation that was opposed by some who were not enamored of Reagan's legacy.
Airport officials are warning travelers that Tuesday's unveiling ceremony could cause traffic delays outside the airport. Between 11 a.m. and noon, car traffic heading for the airport's departures and arrivals ramps will be reduced from four lanes to one and will then be detoured around the event site.
