NEW YORK (AP) - The opening of the new Fulton Street Transit Center in Lower Manhattan will be delayed by 60 to 90 days.

The transit hub had been slated to open on Thursday.

According to The New York Times (https://nyti.ms/TroqDl ), transit officials said Monday that the deadline had to be pushed back due to testing delays and unfinished elevators.

Construction on the extension of the No. 7 line to the Far West Side also faces delays as a result of elevator and other problems. That project was scheduled to open by the end of the year. Officials say it now will not be completed until February 2015.
