Work Begins on $21M Stewart Expansion

STEWART AIRPORT – Prep work has begun to build a 20,000 square foot federal inspection station on the passenger terminal at New York Stewart International Airport.

The addition will for a federal inspection services facility to separate international and domestic passengers.

Airport business development director Michael Torelli said the initial part of the $21 million project has begun.

In April, ground will be broken to begin the actual expansion with the project expected to be completed by August 2020. Kokolakis Contracting of Bohemia, New York was awarded the project.

Meanwhile, Forefront Power of San Francisco has been awarded the $5.7 million project to build a solar carport over a portion of the main terminal parking lot. Electricity generated from that will be used to power the terminal building.
