NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Metropolitan Transit Authority is giving the public a new look at the progress being made building the Second Avenue subway.

Images released on Monday show photos from the construction process as well as renderings of completed subway stations at 63rd, 72nd and 96th streets.

Phase I of the Second Avenue subway project, which includes stations at 72nd, 86th and 96th Streets, is expected to serve 200,000 riders a day, relieving congestion on the Lexington Avenue line.

It is expected to be completed in December 2016. It will function as an extension of the Q train.
