LGA | New LaGuardia Airport











Quote:
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Tuesday that the east side of the new LaGuardia Airport, which will house Delta terminals, has officially started construction.
Terminals C and D will be completely rebuilt and the four new concourses will be connected with a canopy and walkways so passengers can easily access other parts of the airport.

This will be the first major reconstruction of an airport in the country since Denver International Airport was built in 1994. In a visit to Philadelphia in 2014, Vice President Joe Biden compared LaGuardia Airport to a “third world country.”
Soon after, Cuomo announced a $6 billion private-public partnership that would transform the Queens airport, which was opened in 1939, into a “globally renowned airport.”

Construction began in 2016 on the largest public-private partnership in United States history, with LaGuardia Gateway Partners financing two-thirds of the project. Delta Airlines will contribute $3.4 billion to construct its new terminal.
Half of the new gates in Terminal B will be open to passengers by 2018. The main terminal area, which will connect Terminal B and Terminal C for the first time, will be open in 2020 and a second set of gates will open in two phases – one later in 2020 and the last phase in 2021.
“We’re going to build that’s smarter, more efficient, more effective than ever before,” Cuomo said at the press conference.

Will they ever build a new runway or not? Will they ever consider it? Once Rikers Islands will be closed and they will be demolished it.

Who knows. Not anytime soon anyway, that's a fact. The prison won't close for a long time.
