Albany ALB Airport Overview
It is also gateway to the spectacular Adirondack State Park, a huge region which includes a part of Lake Champlain, Lake George, Lake Saranac, Tupper Lake and a multitude of smaller lakes and mountains, making it an ideal vacation spot for weary city dwellers.
ALB Airport is located in Loudonville, County of Albany - northwest of downtown Albany. It is accessible from the Adirondack Northway I-87, exit 4, which connects to the NYS Throughway (I-90 West/East, I-87 South/North) exit 24 to the South, and I-88 connects to it at exit 25A (to the SW).
NOTE: Northway Exit 4 Bridge Replacements: As the project's first phase (of two phases), construction started late February 2015 on the replacement of bridges carrying Adirondack Northway over Albany-Shaker Rd. at Exit 4 in Colonie, NY. Exit 4 is the main route to the Airport for Northway traffic. Once the new bridges are in place, existing lanes will be removed. Note that some lanes will temporarily close during off-hours and Exit 4 ramps may close for short time. No completion date is yet available.
