The soaring, white transportation hub opening next week at the World Trade Center was designed to evoke a bird in flight, but it is hatching under a cloud.That's roughly the same price as the nation's tallest skyscraper, next door -- the 104-story One World Trade Center.Though some parts of the hub are still under construction, PATH trains will ultimately be connected to 11 New York City subway lines, as well as ferries.The Port Authority puts the current cost at $3.9 billion because of overruns and delays blamed on factors including the architect's exacting demands and the complexity of building the hub while the Sept. 11 museum and new office towers were also under construction.That line, the No. 1 train, now passes through the new hub on a 200-foot (60-meter)-long bridge that lacks any support columns.The Port Authority's Plate defended the building's costs.
