HELL’S KITCHEN — The Port Authority will review a plan to build a new bus terminal at the site of its existing Eighth Avenue transit hub this week, a spokesman said.
In April, the agency’s chief of major capital projects said it was studying the possibility of using a “build-in-place” option to replace the aging terminal.
The agency’s board will hear a presentation focused on that option at its weekly meeting this Thursday, spokesman Steve Coleman said.
The plan would involve constructing a new terminal at the existing site “without disrupting operations,” he explained
Port Authority had originally planned to build a replacement terminal west of its existing one — launching a competition seeking a design in 2015 — but ultimately agreed to restart the process amid vehement community opposition.
Crain’s New York first reported on the board’s upcoming meeting agenda.
