As if airports do not have enough incoming and outgoing traffic, the new construction at LaGuardia Airport is definitely not helping at all.
A Day To Remember At LGA
This past Sunday and Monday had travelers in a complete standstill for hours due to traffic. Construction on a new 3,000-space parking garage which is the first of the new $4 billion terminal at LaGuardia, led to detours at 94th Street, the first exit from the airport that has you head toward Manhattan. It was told on Monday by the project supervisor that traffic light problems messed up the exit that day. The passengers were already on edge after dealing with a whole day of flight delays due to bad weather. People were being held up so badly that passengers started hoping out of their taxis and walking the rest of the way to their terminals.
New Changes To The Chaotic Construction
The construction team, LaGuardia Gateway Partners, were asked to come up with a plan to minimize undue and unsafe impacts on travelers by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office. With that being said, on Thursday, there were signs of improvement in the traffic situation ar LGA. The taxi line was moved east of Terminal B so the cabs can now take the passengers in the city without having to linger in the airport causing less congestion. It is also report that air traffic tends to lighten up September which will reduce the amount of traffic coming in and out of LaGuardia Airport.
