There is a much-needed expansion coming to the Albany International Airport. The renderings are beautiful and they should break ground in late spring of next year with the expectation of being finished by the end of 2024. It will cost nearly $100 million.
When you go through the Albany International Airport checkpoint you won't have to worry about having a small amount of marijuana on you. If you have a small amount of pot, TSA agents and police will no longer seize it, arrest you, or even issue a ticket not just at Albany International Airport but airports across New York state. Officials say it's not something security officers are looking for when they pat you down or search your bags.
Now that some things are getting back to normal, there are more and more people traveling. That means that the Transportation Security Administrating needs to hire more agents at some New York airports including Albany International Airport.
If you have traveled the Northway at all in the past few months, you know that the construction is a nuisance. But you may have also noticed that they have made significant progress. Officials say they are ahead of schedule.
