NEW YORK (AP) — After years of delays, the newest station on the No. 7 subway line is scheduled to open next month.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the 34th Street-Hudson Yards station will debut on Sept. 13.

The line will extend from its current terminus at Times Square to 11th Avenue on Manhattan's far west side.

The MTA says the 1.5-mile extension will be the only subway line south of 59th Street to provide service west of Ninth Avenue.

Manhattan's far west side is undergoing a major redevelopment with the construction of the 28-acre Hudson Yards retail and residential project.
