Weekend Closure Of North-bound Tube Of Queens Midtown Tunnel for Ongoing Superstorm Sandy Repairs

Published on : Friday, May 13, 2016

MTA-RailThe Manhattan-bound (north) tube of the Queens Midtown Tunnel will be closed this weekend, Friday, May 13 from 11 p.m. through Monday, May 16 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 four-year $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.
