2nd Ave Subway Pushed Back Two Years

We’re two years into the digging of the Second Avenue subway and now the MTA says it won’t open until 2017. Maybe.

The conclusion: the official completion date for phase one of the project should be pushed from June 2015 to December 2016, with possible future delays placing the opening in the summer of 2017, the sources said. And, the Long Island Rail Road’s extension to Grand Central Terminal – most recently set to be finished in February 2015 – is now expected to be ready for use in September 2016, according to sources familiar with the analysis.

At least the first phase to open includes the stop on my corner! I’ll meet you downtown in eight years.
