7 Train Extension Delayed

January 27, 2014 | Andy Cush

The 7 train extension will not be ready to ride by June after all. Despite $2.4 billion and an inaugural trip by then-mayor Michael Bloomberg last month, the project, which would bring the line to 11th Avenue and down to 34th Street, is running behind schedule, and is now projected to open late summer or early autumn.

According to the Post, “problems installing the station’s high-rise and incline elevators” are to blame. A reasonable enough excuse, but what about electric eels?
