One Tube Closed At Hugh L. Carey Tunnel Next Two Weekends

Published on : Wednesday, November 13, 2013

MTA-RailOne tube at the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel will be closed the next two weekends from 9 p.m. Fri., through 5 a.m. Monday as part of the project to replace the tunnel’s original 1950s-era electrical switches and feeder cables.

The remaining tube will have one lane heading into Manhattan and one lane into Brooklyn. Motorists are advised to expect delays and use an alternate route if possible.
The work includes replacing the tunnel’s 1950′s electrical system, which provides the necessary electrical power to run the tunnel’s ventilation, lighting, drainage, and communication systems.

In addition to this weekend Nov. 15-18, one tube will also be closed Nov. 22-25.
Both tubes will be open during Thanksgiving weekend. A closure is scheduled for the following weekend, Dec. 6-9.
