Part of a $4B overhaul of the airport
Vice President Joe Biden and Governor Andrew Cuomo will break ground on the long-awaited LaGuardia AirTrain project this afternoon, NY1 reports. Once up and running, this 1.5 mile long route, that will run along the Grand Central Parkway, will connect to the 7 Train, and Long Island Railroad at Willets Point.
The AirTrain is part of the $4 billion overhaul of LaGuardia Airport that is now getting underway and will lead to the creation of a new terminal that will reduce delays and allow better circulation for passengers and flights connecting through the airport.
