NEW YORK CITY (PIX11) -- The 7 train extension to Manhattan's West Side will not open by Feb 24, 2015.

MTA says it's now planning for sometime in April, May or June.

Escalators and elevators have been blamed for previous delays. Contractors were promised a bonus if the station opened by February 24, 2015.

But that date will not be met says Dr. Michael Horodniceanu, the President of MTA Capital construction.
