WATERTOWN, N.Y. -- Watertown International Airport is in need of nearly a million dollars in upgrades and design work to accommodate new regional air carrier American Eagle.

Earlier this year, it was announced that American Eagle would take over for Cape Air and fly to Chicago. However, before flights can begin, the airport needs to undergo some construction.

The County Legislature's General Services Committee is reviewing a $100,000 project. Design work which will be done by a Rochester firm.

Renovations will focus on improving areas that make traveling easier for passengers.

"Our primary focus is on the baggage movement for our soldiers and our military that will be coming in out and also our business travelers," said Jefferson County Legislator Barry Ormsby.

Construction needs to begin by September 1st to meet the beginning of flights this fall.
