NEW YORK (AP) -- Dark, dingy, cramped and sad. These are some of the ways travelers describe LaGuardia Airport, a bustling hub often ranked in customer satisfaction surveys as the worst in the U.S.

But that could be changing.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state is taking control of an ambitious $3.6-billion construction project at LaGuardia that calls for an entirely new Central Terminal Building.

It will feature retail shops, restaurants and other amenities, along with new parking garages and other support facilities.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey technically runs the airports and has given its blessing for the state to oversee the project.

Four companies have been asked to submit proposals by April 15. Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year.
