Upper East Side residents may not see an end to the long construction project along the Second Avenue subway construction route due to a lack of funds, reports the New York Post.
Officials are encouraging residents to ask state lawmakers for money after learning capital funds for the construction could be gone by the end of this year. The lack of funds would keep transit officials from starting three contracts for stations at 72nd St., 86th St. and 96th St.
The federal government provided one-third of the $4.45 billion for the first phase of the Second Avenue subway, but lawmakers in Albany have yet to make any moves in providing more funds to complete construction.
