Weekend work affecting 17 subway lines

This week was a bit of a milestone for the Second Ave. Subway. While we were debating the fate of the Q train, the MTA quietly announced that the first train had rolled down the tracks underneath Second Ave. The work train you see above took the ride from the old tracks to the new near 63rd St. At some point soon — hopefully by the end of 2016 — New York City will finally have a piece of the Second Ave. Subway. What the future holds is up to Gov. Cuomo who appears unwilling to act and unwilling to lead.

As you mull over our governor’s abandonment of the city’s transit system, get ready for weekend work. You know the drill.

    Nice picture. The SAS tunnel seems very spacious.

    I wonder why they couldn’t suspend the M the entire weekend over two day suspension?
