NY-NJ Port Authority approves $4.5B of airport projects

The AirTrain project at LaGuardia, which is still undergoing an environmental review, will use the design-build-operate-maintain (DBOM) delivery method. The authority has not yet awarded the construction contract for the project. The new AirTrain at LIA could also be delivered using the DBOM model, but the board is considering other options.
