Queens Midtown Tunnel Queens-bound Tube Closed This Weekend

Published on : Wednesday, May 27, 2015

MTA-RailThe Queens-bound (south) tube at the Queens Midtown Tunnel will be closed to traffic from 10:30 p.m. Friday, May 29 through 5:30 a.m. Monday, June 1 for removal of ceiling panels damaged during Superstorm Sandy.


Motorists should allow extra travel time and use an alternate route if possible.


The work will take place over the next two months and will require six, non-consecutive weekend-long tube closures of the Queens-bound tube. During the weekend-long closures one lane will be open in each direction in the remaining tube for cars and buses. All commercial traffic must use an alternate route while two-way traffic is in effect.


The work is being done by BHW Contracting, Inc., a New York State certified Minority Business Enterprise located in Staten Island.


During the closure, motorists driving into Queens should enter the tunnel at 34th Street between Second and Third avenues. Manhattan-bound motorists can exit normally at 37th Street exit to head uptown. Downtown Manhattan-bound traffic should use the Marginal tunnel exit to 38th Street and then continue on to Second Avenue. The 34th Street and Second Avenue ramps will be closed to traffic exiting in Manhattan.


Traffic agents and signs will be in place to help direct motorists.
