Wish people would just accept the fact were not seeing another subway line for like 6+ years. Construction isn't gonna go any faster :P

Ehh, it's not even MTA I'm going to blame.  I'm 22 now and my parents told me they've been repairing the Gowanus Expressway before I was even born.  If they aren't done with that then I can't really see this being done by 2016.

I couldn't care less if you ask me... I want to know what you all think. To me it's just a load of pure and hearty BS

Lol yeah by the time the finish with one side of the expressway, the other needs repairing. It's a cycle that has been going on for as long as I can remember.

2016 is in fact the completion date of phase 1.  Like everybody says though, we'll see it when we believe it.  They may be finished with tunnels, but it will take them another 5 years to actually finish the line.  They'll prolong it to keep jobs and what not.

I thought phase I fhinishes in 2014. If that's the case they might as well send it to the bronx like in the extra plan lol.

MTA pushed the date back twice hence why 2016 is in the midst.

i am glad that it is not delayed like before and not prone to obnoxious failures from the 1930s and 70s.

It may state that it isn't delayed but come on, it's New York, it's delayed. LOL, for example, I bring back the whole Gowanus situation.  Driving there is a hassle every morning.
