The first phase of the delayed Moynihan Station project is slated to begin later this year, Reuters reported. The upcoming project will expand Pennsylvania Station’s access to underground passenger platforms and is projected to cost $270 million.

The plans include creating street-level entrances on two corners of Eighth Avenue, one at 31st Street and the other at 33rd Street, to train platforms underground. There will also be reconstruction of an underground passageway to Penn Station to make it both wider and extend further for better access to Amtrak, New Jersey Transit and the Long Island Railroad. Additional plans include the installation of an underground ventilation system.

The first phase is expected to be completed in 2016. The second phase of the project will convert the James Farley Post Office, which is located across Eighth Avenue from Penn Station, into a six-story passenger hub. [Reuters]
