New tunnels will be constructed from the LIRR Mainline tracks in Queens, under Amtrak’s Sunnyside Yard and LIRR’s Existing Rail Yard, connecting to the existing 63rd Street Tunnel just beyond Northern Blvd. In Manhattan, new tunnels will be bored from the existing bellmouth structure at Second Avenue and 63rd Street, west and then south, under Park Avenue and Metro-North Railroad’s four-track right of way.
Scheduled for completion in 2016, the project has a budget of $7.3 billion dollars.
