Second Avenue Subway Watch

New, 8 comments

With a $15 billion funding gap, the MTA's chairman Tom Prendergast says the next phase of the Second Avenue subway will be the first thing on the chopping block in the MTA's five-year capital plan. Predergast testified to two state Senate committees in Albany that the following projects to get sacrificed would be things like countdown clocks and station improvements. Currently, the mayor's budget trims $60 million to the capital program. With the MTA relying on the state and federal governments for majority of its funding, this is a crisis indeed.
