The Port Authority is launching a $5.5 million capital project to repave the Holland Tunnel this weekend. Starting the weekend of October 4th, crews will mill and pave both the north and south tunnels (including the approach ramps), rebuild curbs, and replace five cross drains. Work hours will be Saturdays and Sundays from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m. The project will continue through fall 2009, and will help reduce frequent asphalt concrete pavement repairs. The tunnel roadways were last repaved in 1988.
Work will be weather-dependent, and may be suspended for holidays. Port Authority bridge and tunnel reports are available at www.btalerts.paalerts.com.
