SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - The 55-year-old Syracuse airport is getting a $45 million makeover.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that the state will put up nearly $36 million for the renovation over the next two years. The rest of the money would come from Onondaga County, the Syracuse Airport Authority and the federal government.

The upgrade will feature a new facade, a regional aviation history museum, a glass pedestrian bridge and an eco-friendly roof over the main entrance.

Cuomo says the project will create 869 construction jobs.

He discussed the project as part of his state of the state address in Syracuse.
