Cuomo today celebrated the installation of a new Capital Region gateway welcome sign spanning Albany Shaker Road in Colonie, Albany County and the unveiling of the new in-terminal Mario & Matilda Cuomo Pavilion Room, symbolically marking the completion of the $63.3 million modernization of Albany International Airport. The project rehabilitated the airport terminal, enhanced passenger amenities and expanded parking with a new, multi-level, 1,000-space parking garage.  The project is a key component of a $72.1 million state investment that upgraded the airport and the roadways leading to it, including the creation of the long-awaited Exit 3 off the Northway after decades of delay. The $72.1 million investment includes $22.1 million from the $200 million Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Competition, first announced by Governor Cuomo in his 2016 State of the State Address and passed in the 2017 State budget. Additional funding for the airport project was provided by the Albany County Airport Authority and the federal government. "Albany International Airport is a regional gateway, a hub for business and leisure travel that is critical to economic competitiveness for the Capital Region and beyond," Governor Cuomo said. "Transforming this airport and others across the state is providing local communities with important keys to success for tourism and business growth in the 21st century."

Project with NYS Parks connects Third Street with Upper Niagara River See renderings here USA Niagara Development Corporation (USAN) and New York State Parks have announced the start of construction of a new pedestrian entry into Niagara Falls State Park. Located at 305 Buffalo Avenue, on the corner of Third Street and Buffalo Avenue, the entry goes through a vacant parcel purchased by USAN through the Buffalo Billion Strategic Land Acquisition Program. The program provides funding to acquire vacant or underutilized properties near Niagara Falls State Park. "Niagara Falls is a wonder of the world unique to Western New York, and one of our great tourist attractions and economic drivers in New York State," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. “This new pedestrian entry into Niagara Falls State Park will increase accessibility and create a link between the Riverway pathway system and downtown Niagara Falls. As New York reopens smartly and safely, we are building back better than ever before, and this project is another example of New York's dedication to the revitalization of Niagara Falls and the entire region for all to enjoy."​ The project consists of the construction of a 6-foot-wide asphalt pathway through the USAN-owned property, a steel stairway down a 28 foot grade change into the Park, asphalt pathway connection to the Riverway pathway system along the Upper Niagara River Rapids, and pathway lighting.  The connector will allow easier access for residents, business and visitors from the Buffalo Avenue Heritage District to the Niagara River and the American Rapids.  See renderings here. “It has long been envisioned that every street in downtown Niagara Falls would provide pedestrian access to the water’s edge,” said USAN President Anthony Vilardo. “We are very proud to have partnered with New York State Parks in providing access to the residents of Niagara Falls and to the millions of visitors we attract annually.” “With the recent restoration and expansion of the State Park, it only makes sense to better connect the park to the city in any way we can,” said State Parks Western District Director Mark Mistretta.  “This location is a natural way for both visitors and residents to access a world class waterfront, just yards above Niagara Falls.” The over 1-acre vacant parcel is located at 305 Buffalo Avenue in the Buffalo Avenue Heritage District.  It is adjacent to the Niagara Falls State Park, which draws roughly 10 million annual visitors. The $682,000 project will be publicly owned and maintained.   Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has emphasized improving the visitor experience at Niagara Falls State Park and downtown Niagara Falls and this project builds upon public and private investments made in Niagara Falls since 2011.  Future development of the site will be conducted through a Request for Proposals (RFP) process. About USA Niagara Development Corporation USAN, a subsidiary of Empire State Development Corporation, is solely dedicated to the support and promotion of economic development initiatives in Niagara Falls by leveraging private investment and encouraging growth and renewal of the tourism industry in the City of Niagara Falls.  For more information, visit https://esd.ny.gov/usa-niagara-development-corporation-6 Contact: Pamm Lent | [email protected] | (716) 846-8309 | (800) 260-7313 Laura Magee | [email protected] | (716) 846-8239 | (800) 260-7313
