Project Timeline (Updated April 2016)
Construction was originally targeted for 2017, pending full project funding. As of April 2016, the timeline for the C Line has been adjusted to construction occurring instead in 2018. Full funding for the project has not yet been identified, and a 2018 construction schedule offers better opportunities to coordinate C Line construction with other road projects on Brooklyn Boulevard and Penn Avenue. Metro Transit is working to advance project engineering throughout 2016-2017 and begin construction in 2018.
