MTA Adds Third Brooklyn-Bound Lane at Hugh L. Carey Tunnel; Expected to Shorten Bus Customers’ Commutes and Reduce PM Congestion

MTA Bridges and Tunnels today announced that the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel will resume operating three Brooklyn-bound lanes during the weekday afternoon/evening peak travel periods resulting in better traffic flow and shorter commutes for MTA bus customers and motorists. On Monday, Sept. 14, both tubes of the tunnel will carry traffic from Manhattan to Brooklyn between the hours of 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Two-way operations in the West Tube were paused during the height of the pandemic, but have resumed due to the recent increase in traffic around the southern horn of Manhattan.
