Work to transform Syracuse’s Hancock Airport is on track to start soon.
Phase 1 of the project is planned to get going in mid-June. It’s the concourse/terminal improvements part of the project which will include new flooring and new seating.
Phase 2 of the project, which entails demolishing the exterior canopy, is targeted to start around the end of August. Bids for that work are out right now.
The remainder of the project, which includes a brand new façade for Hancock Airport, is in the design stage now with construction targeted to start next Spring.
The Governor announced earlier this year in his State of the State plan a project to greatly modernize Hancock Airport.
New York State is contributing $35.8 million of the $45 million project.
Syracuse Airport Executive Director Chris Callahan tells NewsChannel 9, “I think it’s going to make passengers and the airport users happy to have a terminal that’s easy to navigate and really complete that experience for people who are leaving, and people who are arriving to our region because we are the gateway to this region.”
She says the entire project is expected to be finished by the end of October 2018.
