East Side Access Project Moves Foward

Progress on the East Side Access Project, which will dramatically reduce commute times for LIRR riders, is moving forward. On Monday, the ground was broken on a new entrance to Grand Central at 47th Street, between Park and Lexington Avenues.

The entrance will cost $14 million to construct and will open in 2011. The entrance, however, will not be completed until 2016.
