Funds For MTA In Harlem Not Clear Under New $1 Billion Trump Infrastructure Plan

NY1 reports that the future of the Second Avenue subway could be in jeopardy under President Donald Trump’s new $1 trillion infrastructure plan.

In an interview with the New York Times, President Trump said he wasn’t sure if it includes money for an expansion, or the proposed train tunnel under the Hudson River.

It will cost $14 billion to extend the Second Avenue line.

The MTA has set aside one billion dollars to bring it into East Harlem.

Meanwhile, lawmakers insist federal funding is necessary to build the Hudson Rail Tunnel between the city and New Jersey.

It would help clear up congestion along the Eastern Corridor.

Trump tells the paper he will look at both projects and submit them to a not-yet-formed commission.

He is also considering attaching the infrastructure plan to a revived version of his failed healthcare overhaul, in order to win bipartisan support.
