Bids have gone out for the design phase of the new airport terminal at Griffiss International Airport in Rome. Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente says that the hopes are that the new terminal, along with the 1,500 jobs being created from the new QUAD-C Building at SUNYIT and other expected nanotechnology jobs to follow, will be enough to lure a commercial airline to fly out of Oneida County. Bids will be accepted over the next few months with the county then going out to bid for actual construction. Picente added that if all goes well, a commercial airline could set up shop at Griffiss sometime late next year.
