The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has approved a total of $600M of funding for the construction of a new terminal to replace Terminals C and D for Delta Air Lines at LaGuardia Airport.

 
The Port Authority plans to contribute $200M towards the Delta terminal for new concourses and ramp work and $185M for the construction of an electrical substation and the expansion of the East Garage, along with any necessary temporary parking solutions during construction.
 
Furthermore, $215M will go towards roadways and other supporting infrastructure. Delta Air Lines will be responsible for performing and managing the construction work, with full responsibility for any cost over-runs.
 
The development, which represents the second phase of the airport’s redevelopment and modernisation program, will help unify the airport through the interconnection of Terminal B with the new 37-gate Terminal C&D facility which will house Delta. The second phase of the project is expected to cost about $4bn.
 
Work on the Delta phase of the project is expected to start in 2017 — subject to approval from the Federal Aviation Administration — and is scheduled to be complete in 2024. The main head house of the new terminal is anticipated to open in 2020.
