The $$92 million contract was awarded to a partnership of Tully Construction and Pegno Construction. The MTA says it is saving millions of dollars because those construction companies are already working on rebuilding a PATH station in the same area.
Officials say they hope to have the 1 and 9 subway lines restored into lower Manhattan by late fall, including the opening of the Rector Street and South Ferry stations.
The Cortland Street station won't be included in the project. The MTA says it will be part of future restorations.
