A new project designed to ease traffic at LaGuardia Airport has opened.
Governor Andrew Cuomo said the flyover highway will enhance access and improve traffic flow for those headed to the airport.
“This new flyover will bring immediate relief to travelers driving to LaGuardia Airport, and is a key milestone in our plan to build the nation’s first new airport in more than 20 years and make it a world-class international gateway,” Governor Cuomo said.
Nearly 18,000 drivers travel to LaGuardia every day. The new flyover is expected to handle about 20 percent of the inbound traffic.
This is part of an $8 billion modernization project announced by Governor Cuomo.
