Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo was at the Greater Rochester International Airport on Monday morning to talk about a new canopy project.
It is all part of the ROC renovation project. Dinolfo announced on Monday that there would be a bid package for the airport's revitalization project.
The proposed canopy would be 75 thousand feet, and would give passengers protective ocver and even provide improved security.
The main goal, however, is to improve the passenger experience.
"Our new canopy is gonna extend from the inside of the terminal all the way to the parking lot that's behind us," Dinolfo says.
"So when you're getting dropped off, when you're parking your car at our garage, whether you're pick up one of your loved ones, somebody who's arriving at our airport... you're always gonna be protected from the elements."
The steel needed for the canopy project will come from domestic manufacturers. The project will also include solar panels and a system to collect rainwater.
Bids for the project must be sent to the county by August 10, and construction is expected to start in September.
