It's nice to hear that work is has started. I'm sure that the work will be interesting in that it has to pass under the E, F, V, and R subway lines aswell as tunnel underneath the present F line under 21st street. I'm assuming that the cut and cover method won't be used for this construction.
Queens ChronicleWork has been under way since 2001, but this summer, a bid was accepted for a company to dig the 3.5 miles of Manhattan tunnels needed to bring the LIRR deep under Grand Central Station, according to Beverly Dolinsky, executive director of the Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
Some work in Queens is already under way as well: Upgrades are being made to the tracks near Woodside Avenue and 65th Street, and a large shaft completed in 2003 will be expanded underneath Northern Boulevard by the Sunnyside Railyards, according to the MTA.
