Expansion Update 6/26/2015

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:
  • Major construction and demolition begun inside the airport, causing the noise level to increase, as construction crews continue to tie together the old structure with the new, an integral part for making a seamless transition.
  • General construction work continued as the construction crew integrates new electrical and plumbing in the terminal and office space areas. 
What you can expect next: 
  • South terminal window demolition will continue, allowing the passenger waiting area to tie into the new concourse.
  • Construction crews will start drainage, sidewalk, curb and drive lane work in front of the terminal. Please follow the walkways marked for use.  
Tidbits to remember: 
  • July 6 - July 10 NYS DOT will be working on Route 22 from the City of Plattsburgh to the Salmon River Road, this work will result in lane closures during the day. Passengers should expect possible delays and plan accordingly.
  • 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.
  • 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.
