When is the Second Ave Subway Line being completed?

Second Avenue Subway is a speedy passage subway which has restored hopes to a thousands

The Second Avenue Subway  is a speedy passage subway line that has generated a lot of questions concerning its completion date. It forms a part of the New York City subway system. The project is a long outstanding venture that started in 1929, but which has been occasioned by several starts and interruptions for several reasons such as lack of funds. Unfortunately, this has led many locals to give up on the hope of the subway ever being completed.

However, there are strong indications that the subway might be completed after all in the next decade. If completed, the subway will hope to serve about 560,000 daily riders and the whole line is scheduled for completion by 2029. However, the first phase, which will serve about 200,000 daily riders, will be completed by December 30th 2016.

According to congressional representative, Carolyn Maloney, NY-12, the subway will soon be completed after Metropolitan Transportation authority hit its milestones of phase 1.

The fact that MTA has received all the federal and state funding need to build the project is something that restores hope to New Yorkers that they might live long enough to use the subway. Moreover, all the designing is completed, tunneling done and blasting operations finished.

MTA President Dr. Michael Horodniceanu has said indicated that phase 1 is about 65% completed. The phase extends the Q Train from 57th Street and Seventh Avenue all the way to the Second Avenue and 96th Street.  Once the project comes to completion, the Q Train will reach 125th street, whereas the New T Train will continue from the 125th street across to Hanover Square, Manhattan.

Contrary to what you might expect to be the greatest challenge of the project, it is working in the dense population that presents the greatest challenge and not the construction itself.
