Hurricane Sandy is like the gift that never stops giving, only instead of giving us something good like chocolate, it gives us something bad, like rabies. Basically, the MTA is still reeling from the effects of Sandy and her salt water-induced devastation. The News reports that the "MTA has to do $4.7 billion worth of repairs and component replacement work. It also plans another $4.1 billion in projects to barricade the system against future flooding." And not only will it cost a lot of money, but it means that lines that were most affected, like the R and the A, will face long closures. Awesome.
