Three days short of the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks the “WTC Cortlandt” subway station is finally rebuilt and back in service. Story here.
I find this weird because in 17 years they have remediated the site, built 3 of the 5 skyscrapers, memorial and museum, and PATH transportation center. Why so long for the station? You would that with the site cleared and nothing but a giant hole they would start with foundations for the station and rough-in some connections to the planned buildings.
Also, MTA has never mentioned this rebuild as part of it’s capital projects. Who payed for it?
