The Federal Transit Administration found that two of the MTA's mega projects are behind schedule and over budget.

The East Side Access project, which will extend LIRR service to Grand Central Terminal, is 18 months behind and $800 million over budget, according to the report.

Also, the Second Avenue subway line may open more than a year late.

The MTA said it disagrees with the FTA's assessment, repeating that the projects are on time and on budget.
