T Line Groundbreaking

Second Avenue Subway (first phase)

Status: Under construction

Completion date: 2013

 

Plans for the future T line have been in the works since the 1920s, and now the MTA has finally begun the first $3.4 billion phase of the project. The MTA is digging up utility lines along Second Avenue between 92nd and 96th streets and is also excavating a launch box, a hole where the tunnel boring machine will begin its work below the avenue.

 

This first phase of the project will build stations at 96th, 86th and 72nd Street stations and expand the 63rd Street station at Lexington Avenue. New stations on the line will feature a tempered air system like the 7 line extension. Q line service will be extended from its current stop at 57th Street to the 63rd Street station and will carry a projected 200,000 weekday riders on the new Second Avenue route. The next phases will take the T from 125th to Hanover Square by 2020.
