From the Examiner with respect to San Francisco’s 1.7 mile Central Subway project:
An ambitious plan to build a commuter subway between SoMa and Chinatown is going to cost more and will need an additional two years to complete.
Officials previously envisioned the Central Subway carrying passengers by 2016. But a newly released mandated federal study said the project will not be finished until December 2018 and that the total cost will likely be $1.58 billion, or $278 million more than The City had estimated.
December 2018? We’ll plan on 2019 and hope to be pleasantly surprised.
