JFK airport overhaul plans available for public comment

Following the announcement last week by the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, that the city’s John F. Kennedy International Airport is to receive a US$10bn makeover (read the full story here), the Port Authority for New York and New Jersey has posted the plans online for public comment. The airport’s redevelopment is part of the agency’s US$32bn Capital Plan, which will run from 2017 until 2026 and overhaul the region’s public transportation. A copy of the full plan can be found here.

Most of the money, around US$29.5bn, will be used for direct spending on a number of Port Authority projects, including the updates to JFK, with a commitment to support debt service on US$2.7bn of the Gateway passenger rail tunnel project and related infrastructure – the largest funding commitment by any stakeholder involved in the project to date. Public comment on the document can be submitted by February 15 by emailing, with the board meeting the next day to consider suggestions or amendments.

As well as improvements to JFK, the plan proposes the redevelopment of Terminal A at Newark International Airport, and Terminals C and D at LaGuardia Airport. Money will also be spent on the restoration of the George Washington Bridge.
