7 Line Extension 90 Percent Complete

Recommended Posts

They will probably change the strip maps once the extension opens.

LMAO.

 

Oh yeah, lets not forget to extend the (5) to Co-Op City while were at it.

 

Rep has been reversed. Apparently some unfortunately cannot take a joke.

Did they really just create one station with this extension?

 

Seems to be a legitimate question. Refer to this video:

 

 

Originally in the October 2007 contract money was allocated for a provision for at least a station shell as deliberate overenginnering  construction, in anticipation that the shell for the 10th Ave - 41st Street will be finished into a station as a response to  a community petition by real estate developers contesting the shelving the plans in the blueprints for it's construction.

 

The MTA stated that they can at least construct the shell if partial funding can be sought by the City Of New York, but with the political wrangling taking place, this has not happened and the line was constructed without a station shell @ 10th Avenue. So yes, no second station exists on this extension.

Are there any renderings of the subway entrance(s)?

 

Why was I downvoted for a correct and non inflammatory post? Care to explain? Are you aware of the fact that neg abuse leads to suspensions of accounts?

New elevators can be built  :)

I find it interesting how these comments are thrown out there but they don't come along with "who's going to pay for it?"

Excellent to see the problem taken care of.

The latest from the rumor mill (but from a pretty reliable source) is that the Summer 2014 job pick is going to have all (7) jobs going to 34-Javits, which means they expect the extension to be open by August 2014 at the latest.

So I take it that all the votes he made were undone as well?

As for Flushing, I do think it was a mistake to build the mezzanine directly in the way of the tracks, but it's not like there's any plans for a northern extension any time soon, so I don't think it matters (just leave it alone).

Please, the (D) extension to Burke Ave will get built before anything else in Flushing ever would. The LIRR is handling everything north of Main St.

Summer picks on the (7) to 34th which means it should be open in August 2014 . Make sense even though I was kinda surprised as the practice with new lines is to have newly built subways tunnels or lines altogether open in December (with an exception or two I'm guessing, didn't do the fact checking yet).

 

Man that's a entire year away.

Does anyone know if the station will have direct underground access to the Javits Center?

Based on their renderings,there will be one large entrance located diagonally across the street from Javits Center.

I think the MTA should bring out the redbirds for the opening of the extension. Thoughts?

The (MTA) never does anything nostalgic. Don't hold your breath.
