The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) proposes to extend heavy rail subway service 1.5 miles along the East Side of Manhattan with the Second Avenue Subway Phase 2 project. The project is the second of four planned sections of the Second Avenue Subway, and will connect the northern end of Phase 1 (opening soon) at 96th Street to the Lexington Avenue Line at 125th Street. The project will include three new stations, power substations, signal and communications systems, and car cleaning facilities. The project’s current estimated capital cost is $6 billion.
