New York, NY —
There are signs of concrete progress on the 2nd Avenue subway line. The MTA says it has inked the first construction contract for the new line. The $337 million contract calls for work to begin on the first leg of the project next month. That first leg runs between 96th and 63rd streets.
Plans call for the 2nd Avenue subway to run from 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in Harlem to Hanover Square in lower Manhattan.
