  1. There is no news here. This has been planned for several years.
  2. Enhanced Station Initiative

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- There is a commuter alert for subway riders who rely on the B and C train lines. The MTA says the B and C will close at three stations in Manhattan beginning in April for renovation work. The line will close at 72nd Street, 86th Street and 110th Street. The MTA says the renovations could take up to six months but are necessary changes. In a statement, the MTA said: "This is a program that allows us to do essential work to preserve these stations for the next generation. This will allow us to get in and get out, doing work quickly over the course of months instead of years." http://abc7ny.com/traffic/3-manhattan-subway-stations-to-close-in-april-for-renovation-work/3110242/

    This has to do with the R211s "Budget updated to reflect latest estimate. The budget reflects the revised phasing of the project to reschedule a portion of the in-house support costs and carborne equipment install ation to the future 2020-2024 Capital Program to better align with construction and car procurement schedules."

  11. SUBWAY - Random Thoughts Topic

    There are fewer doors in a whole train of R46s. The needs as much capacity as it can get.
  12. Capital Dashboard Goodies

    The cost is $175,000,000.
  13. Capital Dashboard Goodies

    That is all that was stated. I fully agree about that. I have seen your blog post on it.
