There will be plenty of upgrades inside as well, as the blueprints call for four of the airport’s terminals to be fixed up and expanded. Terminal G will be a totally new addition to the airport’s maze, and a brand new commuter terminal will also spring up for those that enjoy the comfort and amenities found on regional jets and turboprops.
All this new stuff requires a lot of land and cash, so the airport is looking to grab up some homes near the airport. Of course people don’t really love just giving up their houses in favor of airport expansion, so even with the FAA’s seal of approval, don’t expect the bulldozers to start rolling around for some time still.
We’ll be sure to let you know when the first phase of the airport is set to open, as well as when we get a list of new restaurants, bars, and Hudson News outlets.
