In the next few years, several long-delayed NYC subway projects will finally be realized. Get the scoop on some of these developments, including the Second Avenue subway—which is finally making real progress—the 7 line extension, and the Fulton Center, which will connect several NYC subway lines in the Financial District.

RECOMMENDED: All public transportation in NYC

The project: 7 line extension

The details: A new stop at 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue will be added to the Manhattan-Queens connector, in part to link the 26-acre Hudson Yards development with the rest of midtown.

Scheduled completion: June 2014

The project: Repairs to the Greenpoint and Montague tunnels

The details: Expect service interruptions along these lines for the forseeable future: Electrical systems and signal equipment for both were damaged during Hurricane Sandy.

Scheduled completion: G train: TBD in 2014; R train: October 2014

The project: Second Avenue subway

The details: The long-delayed line is coming along: The shells of stations at 96th, 86th and 72nd Streets have been created, and boring is completed on the tunnel connecting 63rd and 96th Streets.

Scheduled completion: Phase one (63rd St to 96th St) is set to open December 2016.

The project: Fulton Center

The details: This $1.4 billion complex will eventually connect 11 subway lines, and will link with the new PATH station at the World Trade Center site, currently slated to open in 2015.

Scheduled completion: June 2014
