This entrance on Vesey Street, which is just temporary, is due to be up and running by the end of the year.
It will eventually be replaced by the permanent, $2 billion PATH terminal, expected to be completed by 2010.
Meanwhile, the Port Authority says it will have to build a protective structure around the slurry wall at the WTC site once a museum is built there.
The slurry wall was built around the site’s perimeter to keep the towers’ foundation dry -- so they could actually be built.
The wall has now become a symbol of survival and a popular tourist attraction.
PA officials say a new concrete liner wall will be constructed to cover the original path hub. Developers say part of the original wall may be exposed so people can touch it.
