Blasting resumes on 2nd Ave. subway after complaints

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Blasting has resumed on the new Second Avenue subway line.

Construction workers began blasting again under the street on Monday.

The work was halted a few weeks ago due to complaints about the dust and dirt.

But managers say they will use smaller blasts and have new ways to minimize the debris.

The more-than-$4 billion project is still on track for completion in 2016.
