Expansion Update 6/12/2015

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:
  • Construction crews have prepared for the removal of the large window in the passenger waiting area on the second floor. This demolition will allow the passenger waiting area to tie into the new concourse.
  • Roofing work and other general construction work continued as the construction crew ties together the old structure with the new, an integral part for making a seamless transition.
What you can expect next: 
  • Framing in the expanded ticket counter area will begin. This important step will allow for more ticket counters to easily accommodate our expected increase in passengers and service.
  • Construction crews will work on water lines on the lower area of the concourse to the terminal, as well as other important infrastructure. 
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.
