good news for the boroughs --- the triboro rx is back in play.


MTA pushes for transit expansions from Bay Ridge to Astoria
Mark Hallum


The 16 miles of track could potentially link riders to intersecting subway lines and the LIRR; one can imagine the likelihood of this with the track crossing 19 subway lines, according to the MTA.

The Bay Ridge Branch crosses from New York Harbor waterfront to the south through Midwood, East New York, Brownsville, Bushwick, Glendale, Middle Village and Elmhurst before reaching Astoria.

The MTA has given the $1.3 million contract to engineering firm AECOM, who will work with a subcontractor referred to by the agency as WSP.
