Expansion Update 7/17/2015

Plattsburgh International Airport is still in phase II of its $55 Million Dollar expansion.  We are excited to share with you this week’s news and updates about the expansion.  

Here’s what has happened:
  • Work continued on the new concourse with the main lobby area receiving new steel framing and decking, and work started on the installation of escalator pits with the removal of concrete. 
What you can expect next: 
  • Framing in the expanded ticket counter area will occur. This important step will allow for more ticket counters to easily accommodate our expected increase in passengers.
  • The excavation of escalator pits will start, making it easier for passengers to get to the second floor with their carry-on luggage.
  • Construction crews will begin to install sidewalks in front of the terminal. Please follow the walkways marked for use.  
Tidbits to remember: 
  • Passengers please be aware that the inner two lanes leading to the terminal entrance, closest to the building, are blocked off. The roadway is being excavated to install a new drainage area and will not be reopened until October 2015. Walkways will be marked for use.
  • Please note the airport’s air conditioning is now off line in the terminal, and probably will be for approximately one month, while contractors make the necessary changes for the tie in.
  • Also, please pardon the noise during this phase of construction. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Airport Staff or Police Office on duty.
