NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney provided an update on the long-anticipated Second Avenue subway project as she announced her re-election campaign.
New entrances are now visible from the street as three new stations along the subway line are set to open in December, WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported.
Maloney expressed confidence that the new entrances would open on time, despite funding concerns for the project.
“There are some naysayers that say it won’t happen, but I believe it will because the professionals at the MTA tell me they are going to make it happen and they’re going to be on budget,” Maloney said.
Maloney has repeatedly expressed her concerns over the timing of the project.
Maloney said the project will be life-changing for those going and coming home from work.
“This is truly an investment in the economic development and quality-of-life for our great city,” Maloney said.
