    Does anyone know what is going on at the WTC PATH station with all the plywood being put up on the staircases? Will those stairs be closed? We the passengers are always the last to be told anything.

    First, they closed down two of the five tracks (if they didn’t need five tracks, why did they spend our money building them??). So, now there are only three tracks at the WTC, which seems like it could be a big problem in certain circumstances.

    Now they seem to be getting ready to close down half the staircases on the one platform or maybe they will close down the whole platform.

    Or maybe they are going for PATH entrance number 4 since they re-opened. Anyone know ?

      Unfortunately, it appears that they had to build temporary platforms that would continuously operate throughout the construction process. It looks like construction has begun on building supports for the site above. The WTC memorial sits partially over the south end of the PATH station. It doesn’t appear that the current station was built to hold that load. Not to mention the fact that they’re working on reinforcing the 1 train line which is right next door and want to expand the Fulton Street corridor. I heard that the Port Authority wants to connect Greenwich St to Fulton St, and Fulton to West St in order to have a continuous path for cement trucks and other construction vehicles to access 1 WTC. If you see the Calatrava arches, that’s the location they’re building above.

      I’m not sure if that really answers your questions, but you can find more info on the forum at wirednewyork.com. My gut feeling is that we will constantly be seeing changes in operations at the PATH station for construction of everything. The terrorists succeeded at killing thousands of Americans and also disrupting the lives of Americans for many years, and many years to come after the attacks of 9/11. It’s a complex construction project and we just need to be mindful and understanding of that.

        It’s basically a subway station…they are making this way more complicated than it needs to be…and don’t forget there was and is an existing PATH station under church street…they should have just used that. The least the Port Authority could do is give us information on what they are doing. I still don’t understand why they built 5 tracks and now closed 2 of them. They weren’t temporary and the Port Authority has said NOTHING about why they closed them or what they are doing now.

      Um, the PATH station was destroyed in a terrorist attack, so the permanent station is still under construction. At least having a temporary station is better than the 2 years of having no station at all.

        I don’t need you to remind me of the terrorist attack. I was there. PATH was good enough to deposit me and a train full of others at the WTC about 7 minutes before the second plane went in.

        It shouldn’t take 8 years to build a subway station and as noted above, there is and was an existing PATH station under church street that they chose not to use. That station was closed when they built the WTC and moved the station but it is still there.

        It seems the only reason the Port Authority is desecrating the place where thousands were murdered by building office buildings on it is to make money and to keep themselves employed in the Port Authority bureaucracy.

        Anyone been to the “9/11 Memorial Preview Site” on Vesey Street and see the things they are selling in there?

        The old Hudson Tubes station was demolished, too, about 4 years ago. The new WTC4 is currently under construction at that location.
