THE BRONX - Thousands of jobs and more than $1 billion in business may be headed to the Bronx.

State and local leaders are calling for four new Metro-North stations in the borough. Using existing Amtrak rails, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) would construct the stops along the New Haven Line.

State Sen. Jeff Klein (D-34th District) says the project would not only ease travel for commuters, but would create ample commercial opportunities.

City officials say the extension, which is expected to cost around $600 million, must be approved by next April. If not, they will have to wait another five years to resubmit it as part of the MTA's capital plan.
