Construction on the 86th Street station of the Second Avenue subway

The Second Avenue subway may not be a functioning line for at least another few years, but construction on its first section—which will travel from 96th to 63rd Streets—marches on. (And hey, 2016 isn't that far off at this point. Right?)


The MTA recently released the above images of construction progress on the 86th Street station, which will be one of the first stops to be completed in 2016. In addition to seeing massive tunnels and tracks as they come together, you can also get a glimpse of the sandhogs working to make the project happen. Pretty cool, huh?
