The gateway welcome sign spanning Albany Shaker Road at the Albany International Airport was lifted into place on Friday, June 29, as part of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's $200 Million Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Competition. Retained by the Albany County Airport Authority (ACAA), national architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann worked with the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) to design and construct the new welcome sign. The sign schematic design was prepared by NYSDOT and Bergmann, as the Engineer of Record, was responsible for preparation of construction documents and permitting for the sign. This was a fast track project, including custom lighting allowing the Airport to change the sign colors in celebration of events, that was initiated in late November 2019.
The new signage is just one part of the $63.3 million modernizations Governor Cuomo has pledged to the Airport, including the rehabilitated airport terminal, enhanced passenger amenities and expanded parking with a new, multi-level, 1,000-space parking garage.
