No major delays as Lincoln Tunnel repair work begins
NEW YORK -- Monday marked the start of a yearlong project to overhaul the helix that leads into the Lincoln Tunnel from New Jersey.
New York-bound motorists who use the tunnel during the overnight hours will face detours and delays, but the first night of work went off without a hitch.
The Port Authority says the $88 million project involves repaving, rehabilitating the concrete deck and fixing the deteriorating steel under the more than 70-year-old elevated roadway leading to the tunnel.
The tunnel will remain open and accessible during the overnight work, but eastbound lanes will be closed from 10:30 p.m. until 5 a.m. on weekdays.
NJ Transit bus passengers will face delays into New York City between 10:30 p.m. and 5 a.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. on weekends.
