FTA grants $21 million to New York projects

Posted on June 14, 2002

The Federal Transit Administration announced three grants totaling $21 million in federal funding for public transportation projects in the state of New York. Two grants will go to New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority. A grant of $14.59 million will be used for design activities for the proposed East Side Access project. A second grant of $4.98 million will be used to fund preliminary engineering work on the proposed Second Avenue Subway. The East Side Access project will provide commuters on the Long Island Railroad direct access to the east side of Manhattan and relieve congestion at Penn Station. The third grant, for $1.48 million, will go to the Westchester Department of Transportation for the construction of an intermodal transportation center in the city of New Rochelle. This center will link intercity bus service, local bus service, taxis, and a 900-space parking garage.
