Superstorm Sandy RepairsThe Queens-bound (south) tube of the Queens Midtown Tunnel will be closed this Sunday, August 21, 2016, from 10:00 p.m. through Monday, August 22 at 5:30 a.m., to accommodate ongoing Superstorm Sandy restoration work. One lane will remain open in each direction in the other tube during this period.

 
Motorists should allow extra time and may wish to use an alternate route if possible.
The $236.5 million project was awarded to Judlau Contracting Inc. of Queens in April 2015. The restoration and repair work include replacing multiple systems that were damaged during Sandy in 2012, such as electrical and communications, drainage and fire standpipe. In addition to other capital improvement work, contractors are installing new LED lights and emergency way-finding safety lights; replacing tunnel wall tiles, ceiling finishes, curbs, catwalks, and duct banks, and repaving tunnel roadways.
