Phil D. 0 Posted October 20, 2007 Share #1 Posted October 20, 2007 October 19, 2007 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. http://www.ny1.com/ny1/content/index.jsp?stid=1&aid=74754 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
