One tube at the Hugh L Carey Tunnel will be closed to traffic beginning 9:30 p.m. Friday, June 12 through 5:30 a.m. Monday, June 15 as part of the four-year, $282.5 million contract for Sandy restoration, repair and resiliency work.
Two-way traffic will be in effect in the remaining tube. Motorists should allow extra travel time and use an alternate route if possible.
This is the first weekend-long tube closure that will take place at least once a month through 2018 while the Sandy repair work is completed. In addition, one tube is closed nightly Monday to Friday between 9:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. and Sundays from 11 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. for routine maintenance work.
Tully Construction Company was awarded the contract in December 2014 to make permanent repairs to the tunnel, which was flooded with some 60 million gallons of water during Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
The work includes replacing the entire traffic control and communications, lighting, drainage pump and fire line systems; making concrete repairs; installing new LED lights and emergency way-finding safety lights; replacing tunnel wall tiles, ceiling finishes, catwalks and duct banks; rehabilitating curbs and gutters and repaving the tunnel roadways.
