MTA East Side Access - 4/15/2014 Update

Time-lapse video of work being done during the fall of 2013 on contract CQ-032 of the East Side Access project.

The East Side Access project will connect the Long Island Rail Road's Main and Port Washington lines in Queens to a new LIRR terminal beneath Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. The new connection will increase the LIRR's capacity into Manhattan, and dramatically shorten travel time for Long Island and eastern Queens commuters traveling to the east side of Manhattan.
