Construction is expected to begin on a new Exit 4 off the Northway next year.
That new Exit 4 would connect the Northway with the Albany International Airport,
The Albany County Legislature's Mass Transit Committee gave its approval to an offer by the State Department of Transportation to pay the Albany County Airport Authority $855,000 for 12 acres of land for an exit ramp.
The full County Legislature must still approve the deal.
If they do, DOT's Brian Viggiani says construction could start next year.
