Holland Tunnel Planned Weekly Construction


LINCOLN TUNNEL COMMUTERS SHOULD EXPECT HEAVIER-THAN-USUAL TRAFFIC AS A RESULT OF CLOSURE OF A SECTION OF THE NEW JERSEY TURNPIKE EXTENSION

Date: Dec 28, 2017

The Port Authority is advising Lincoln Tunnel and Port Authority Bus Terminal travelers to factor additional time into their commutes today and tomorrow, especially during the rush hours, because of the closure of the Eastbound Newark Bay-Hudson County Extension between Interchanges 14 and 14A. The New Jersey Turnpike Authority has closed the section indefinitely for structural repairs.

Traffic patterns at the Lincoln Tunnel and bus terminal have been modified this evening to accommodate drivers who would normally use the New York-bound Holland Tunnel. Because of the expected increase in traffic, the Lincoln Tunnel will maintain three lanes in each direction through the tubes to ease traffic flow and the arrival of buses to the bus terminal in Midtown.

The New York-bound express bus lane will be operational during the Thursday morning commute.
