JFK Airport to Receive $10 Billion Overhaul
Posted on February 15 2017
JFK is getting a facelift. A $10 billion facelift that is. As the busiest airport in the United States with over 60 million flyers in 2016 and over 100 million expected by 2050, JFK is in dire need of upgrades. With $7 billion from private investors and $2 billion from the New York State Department of Transportation already pledged, upgrades are set to include improved road access, the expansion of rail mass transit, centralized parking lots, newer terminals, upgrades to older terminals, increased fine dining options, duty-free shopping, and conference room facilities. Upgrades in technology, such as facial recognition and video tracking software, will also be incorporated as part of a general security overhaul.
