Elevators Coming To Broadway Junction

However the question is when? Let us first get into the initial details as the scumbag piece of shit New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries were out touting the federal government disbursing $15M to help install elevators at the Broadway Junction A, C, J, L & Z station. Clayton Guse of the New York Daily News has more:

Federal funds will boost the MTA’s plan to build elevators at Brooklyn’s busy Broadway Junction station — but it may still take the better part of a decade before the work is complete.

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries on Monday trumpeted a recent disbursement by the U.S. Department of Transportation that sends $15 million to help pay for the project, which will add seven new elevators to the station to serve the underground A and C line platforms and the elevated L, J and Z line platforms.

I just have to say that elevators are long overdue at this station. However it is complete bullshit by all parties involved for the completion of this project to take as long as it will. Why will it take over a year to award a contract much less begin work on the project? Stories like these are why the MTA is so frowned upon by New Yorkers. In this case, can you blame them?
