Work Canceled: One Tube Closed At Hugh L. Carey Tunnel

This weekend’s planned closure of one tube at the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel has been canceled. The work, scheduled for Fri., Dec. 6 through Mon., Dec. 9, was part of an ongoing project to replace the tunnel’s original 1950s-era electrical switches and feeder cables. 

There will be no other weekend-long closures for the rest of the month. The work will resume early in 2014.
