A coterie of New York’s elected representatives announced a new round of stimulus funding for a pair of the MTA’s big ticket capital items. According to a release from Sen. Chuck Schumer’s office, the city is receiving another $275 million in Economic Recovery Act funding for transit projects. The Second Ave. Subway will receive $78.9 million — or enough for approximately a third of a mile of subway line — while the East Side Access project gets a $195.4 million grant. “This funding is a win-win for all New York straphangers,” Schumer said. “Both East Side Access and the Second Avenue Subway will meet commuter needs that have existed for far too long here in New York. These funds will help Long Island and New York City improve transportation options and spur economic growth in the process.” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Representatives Jerry Nadler and Carolyn Maloney all echoed Schumer’s statement.
