John F. Caruso, PE, PMP, President of Passero Associates: “It’s very exciting to see these improvements beginning at ROC. We are honored to be a part of this landmark project, one that will have an impact on ROC, on Monroe County, and on our region at large, for years to come.”


Monroe County and ROC, winners of the Governor’s Upstate Airport Revitalization Program, will construct a tensile structure canopy over the existing departure viaduct and arrivals roads. The construction of a canopy over the entranceway to the terminal building will provide passengers with sheltered access to and from the terminal from both the parking garage and the curbside drop-off and pick-up area.


The canopy has been designed by Passero Associates in conjunction with the County and ROC staff. Providing an aesthetically pleasing gateway to and from the airport. The canopy will also provide an opportunity to mount intelligent video and other security surveillance apparatus like cameras, license plate readers, and luggage motion sensing devices, thus providing an important function in passenger/employee security and safety.


The Entrance Canopy bid package was publicly released July 14, 2017. The construction process will be complete in October 2018, during which time the Airport will remain functional to passengers with major milestones such as placement of the structural steel in the spring of 2018.
