MTA Reaches Deal With Construction Team For 7 Line Extension

Tunneling for the Number 7 line extension could begin soon, as the MTA reached a deal Friday with a construction team to dig the tunnel which will lead to Manhattan’s far West Side.


The full MTA board is expected to approve the contract next week.


The $2 billion project will result in one new station at 34th Street and 11th Avenue.


Plans for a station at 41st Street and Tenth Avenue have been dropped. The MTA had intended to just build the "shell" of a station at 41st and 10th, to be completed later, but that idea was scratched over concerns about cost.


The tunneling contract, worth more than $1 billion, went to the same group working on the Second Avenue subway.


The project will be paid for by the city – not the MTA.
