The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has awarded to C.A.C. Industries Inc. the first construction contract for the project to extend the Second Avenue Subway from 96th Street to 125th Street in Harlem, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced yesterday.

The initial $182 million award is for the first component of the Second Avenue Subway Phase 2 project, which when completed will provide New York City Transit subway service to residents of East Harlem, one of New York City's most transit-dependent neighborhoods, according to an MTA news release.

"We're moving full speed ahead to extend the Second Avenue Subway to East Harlem, expanding transit access for thousands of New Yorkers," Hochul said. "This critical milestone will put shovels in the ground for the next phase of this transformative project."

The award is the first of four construction contracts for the extension. The contract includes relocating underground utilities from 105th Street to 110th Street on Second Avenue at the site of the future 106th Street Station to facilitate a subsequent cut-and-cover construction of the station.
