New roadway network at New York-LGA opens six months ahead of schedule

Delta Air Lines made this announcement:

New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced Thursday the opening of LaGuardia Airport’s new Terminal C outer roadway system, completed six months ahead of schedule and in time to improve traffic flow at the airport as travelers return to the skies this summer. The roadway opening is the latest milestone in the Delta hub’s ongoing $8 billion transformation.

In addition to the roadway system being completed ahead of schedule, construction on Delta’s brand-new, state-of-the-art terminal continues to progress more quickly, so much that the new arrivals and departures hall, as well as the second concourse, will now open to customers next spring, followed by half of the third concourse next summer. This acceleration will now see the entire four-concourse terminal fully complete by the end of 2024, eighteen months earlier than initially planned.

Just a few weeks ago, service was reinstated to a number of key markets including Louisville, Ky., Milwaukee, Wis., Greensboro, N.C., Greenville, S.C., Omaha, Neb., and Birmingham, Ala. And beginning Aug. 5, new twice-daily flights will operate to Toronto, Canada, with plans to boost to six times per day this fall as travel restrictions lift and transborder demand returns.
