With the South Ferry subway station facing years of repairs after Hurricane Sandy, trains will return next month to the old South Ferry station in Lower Manhattan.
The MTA plans to spend $2 million to refurbish the century old subway station while it rebuilds the new complex.
Construction crews are installing electrical feeds at the old station, and fixing the moveable platform edge extenders.
The old station escaped severe damage and still functions as a turnaround loop for some lines.
The new $500 million South Ferry complex flooded with about 15 million gallons of water during Sandy, destroying all electrical and mechanical systems.
