The 81,000 pound Airport Gateway Arch spanning Albany-Shaker Road was lowered into place June 26. The arch welcomes travelers to the Albany International Airport and to the Capital Region.
The installation of the arch completes major upgrades in the Airport Terminal and the construction of a new 1,000 car parking car garage.
“New York State’s commitment to infrastructure is most evident in Governor Cuomo’s $63 million investment to construct our new 1,000 car parking garage along with the major renovation and passenger upgrades in our terminal,” said Philip Calderone, CEO of the Albany County Airport Authority. “Today’s completion of the Airport Gateway Arch will serve as a permanent and iconic symbol welcoming all to our Airport and to our entire Capital Region.”
