PANYNJ Awards $1.24 Billion Contract to Construct JFK’s New Landside Gateway

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has awarded a 1.24 billion USD contract to a joint venture of Skanska and Halmar International LLC to design and build John F. Kennedy International Airport’s (JFK) new landside roadway network and ground transportation centre.

Parsons Corporation has also been selected to serve as the lead designer for the project.

This undertaking is part of the 19 billion USD public-private transformation of JFK. Once complete, it will help improve access to the airport by simplifying the roadway network, providing improved entrances to the terminals, and establishing a new ground transportation centre for taxis, for-hire vehicles, mass transit and parking.

Port Authority Chairman Kevin O’Toole said:

“The transformation of JFK into a global gateway that will rival the best in the world would not be complete without the roads, parking and infrastructure to match. When we are done, JFK will be as easy to access as it is beautiful to behold, serving as the front door to the region that it deserves.”

The design-build project will include roadway reconfiguration and maintenance, as well as intuitive wayfinding and enhanced traffic technologies.

Additionally, the construction of JFK’s new landside ground transportation centre will be a central component of the project. It will feature a multi-level vehicle parking facility with 1,950 spaces, electric vehicle charging stations and an eco-conscious timber façade.

A pedestrian connector will also be built from the new parking facility to JFK’s New Terminal One and multiple green spaces will be incorporated into the infrastructure.

Michael Viggiano, Executive Vice President for Skanska USA Civil’s East Coast Region said:

“We are honoured to have the opportunity to design and construct a world-class landside gateway for one of New York’s most highly travelled international aviation hubs. Not only will the project improve connectivity of JFK’s roadway network, but it will also enhance the overall experience for passengers travelling to and from the airport.”

The new roadway network and ground transportation centre are expected to be completed by December 2027.
