Happy New Year 2017!
Happy New Year 2017!

MTA Bridges and Tunnels will suspend all lane closures related to routine maintenance and temporary construction work for the New Year’s Eve weekend, through the end of the morning rush on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, to accommodate motorists traveling throughout the weekend. Exceptions are the ongoing Fast Track Sandy Restoration work at the Queens Midtown Tunnel and at the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel. At least one lane in each direction will always remain open at both tunnels. Motorists can ease their trip by using E-ZPass.
