Tunnel to Grand Central rolling along at $1M per foot
NEW YORK (AP) — A massive new commuter rail project below New York City’s Grand Central Terminal — one of the nation’s largest transportation upgrades — is slowly rolling forward, including a tunnel costing $1 million per foot, the chief engineer said Wednesday.
Once finished, the terminal will cover five city blocks and reach 14 stories deep under Grand Central, allowing Long Island Rail Road passengers to get off on Manhattan’s east side. For now, they must travel all the way to Penn Station on the west side.
