It's Coming! It's Really Coming!

After more than 80 years, real progress has finally been made with regard to building that urban myth called the 2nd Avenue line, aka the T Line. As soon as the initial budget is approved in late April, a ground breaking ceremony will kick off the Big Dig.

It will be the city's first new subway line in 60 years and slated to be completed (125th Street/Harlem to Hanover Square/Downtown in the Financial District) by 2020.

In the meantime, Upper East Siders might want to think about moving as you're about to be smack dab in the middle of contruction hell:

"Two lanes of traffic on Second Avenue between 96th and 92rd streets will be closed while workers relocate pipes and cables, said Mysore Nagaraja, president of MTA Capital Construction.Six to eight months later at 93rd Street, workers will dig a massive hole to lower a tunnel boring machine 70 feet down. All the while, trucks will be delivering supplies while hauling away dirt and rock.Above-ground work is authorized between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. while tunneling will continue round-the-clock below."
