The terminal should be ready for use by 2021. It is part of the estimated $8 billion redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport.

Cuomo says New York is finally investing in its infrastructure.

“We are living off the inheritance, not of our parents, of our grandparents. Everything you see, all the infrastructure you see, everything we built, all these great accomplishments, literally from our grandparents’ generation.”

State officials announced on Monday the operator of a new commuter rail line between New Haven and Springfield, and said the launch of that service will be delayed into mid-2018.

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy said pushing the start date for what the state’s calling the CTrail Hartford Line to May 2018 will limit disruptions to the new commuter service as the state Department of Transportation works on rail improvements north of Hartford. The service was initially slated to start in January 2018.
