A new subway line in Manhattan’s Financial District will offer an even cleaner commute than the trains that used to run on the line, officials said Monday.
The new line will run on a tunnel beneath Manhattan’s Fulton Street, connecting to the existing line.
It will be one of the few subway lines in the world that will have no trains on it, making it one of only two in the city.
It will run from Union Square to Times Square, as well as the financial district.
It’s expected to open in 2020.
The line is being built in conjunction with the city’s MTA and will use a mix of private and public money.
It is expected to cost $2.8 billion to build.
The city and MTA have been working on the plan for years.
The city is paying $1.3 billion for the tunnel, and it has been paid $1 billion in private money.
The money from the city will cover about 40 percent of the cost, according to a spokeswoman.
The MTA has been building tunnels to connect subway stations with new subway lines.
The tunnels connect subway lines at stations that were already under construction, such as Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal.
