la guardian airportEver since Hurricane Sandy flooded the LaGuardia Airport and closed facilities for three days in the airport a little more than a year ago, the New York State had planned to make more sustainable facilities in the airport, which have finally taken shape. There are plans to spend $37.5 million on flood barriers and improved drainage at LaGuardia Airport, said Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Work has already begun on the projects, which include building barriers around the airport’s electrical systems, expanding the airfield’s drainage network and improving the airport’s back-up generators.

About $28 million of the project’s cost is expected to be covered by federal funds set aside for disaster-mitigation efforts by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the areas airports, Cuomo’s office said in a statement.

LaGuardia Airport sits on the north shore of Queens in New York City, abutting the East River’s Flushing Bay.
