7th Avenue Extension – Manhattan, NY
The NYC subway system is one of the busiest mass transit systems in the world. Ongoing additions to this system including the East Side Access, the 2nd Avenue Subway & the 7th Avenue Extension will help keep the this vital mass transit line in place for the next 100 years.
When the 7 Line Line Extension opens in 2014 it will bring the Flushing Line to 34th Street & 11th Avenue, at the heart of what will be midtown Manhattan’s newest neighborhood. Construction of the 7 Line Line Extension began in December 2007 and is on schedule to open in June, 2014. The subway extension will make it possible for new housing, office buildings, restaurants, entertainment and other commercial establishments to grow on the Far West Side in an area now being referred to as Hudson Yards.
The new subway terminal will improve service reliability for all riders of the 7 Line Line in Queens and Manhattan by providing additional storage space for trains. It will also provide convenient access to the adjacent development and to the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
There are a total of five above-ground work sites for the 7 Line Line Extension Project:
- Site L (Ventilation Building) – 41st Street and Dyer Avenue
- Site K (Ventilation Building) – 11th Avenue between 35th and 37th Streets
