MEDIA ADVISORY - HOLLAND TUNNEL REPAVING PROJECT TO BEGIN THIS WEEKEND

Date: Oct 03, 2008
Press Release Number: 110-2008

The New York-bound Holland Tunnel will be closed Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 8 a.m. beginning October 4, until the scheduled project completion in winter. The repaving of the New Jersey-bound tunnel will begin in spring 2009, and is scheduled for completion in fall 2009.

Work will be suspended for holiday weekends and also may be cancelled in the event of unfavorable weather conditions.

This $5.5 million capital improvement project to repave the north and south tubes, which includes approach ramps and the replacement of drains, will keep the Holland Tunnel in a state of good repair.

During the work, traffic will be diverted to the Lincoln Tunnel.
