When work on the latest expansion to Washington, D.C.’s Dulles Airport is completed in 2020, residents of the nation’s capital will see a vastly different landscape than they are accustomed to.

The Metro is one of many tunneling projects underway in the United States, and one of many discussed when some of the world’s top experts in subway and other tunnel and underground construction came together for the 2018 North American Tunneling Conference at the Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.
