  • re: Central Subway
    So, let me understand this right. The Chinatown station is the only one using this Austrian tunnel method of construction which minimizes surface disruption, yet the merchants are crying that their businesses are suffering because of it. Meanwhile, the Union Square station is being constructed with the tried and true method with apparently more mess and disruptions, but the Union Square merchants aren’t complaining about lost business.

    The Union Square merchants have been complaining too. They’ve complained about the Stockton closure, and they really complained that time construction hit a water main and flooded their basements with a couple feet of water.

  • Accidents are bound to happen given pretty much everything underground is well over a hundred years old. However, the closed off stretch of Stockton between Union Square and Market St. has maintained a lot of foot traffic since construction began and the city has kept sidewalks open, not to mention covering over Stockton during the holidays.
