Callahan Tunnel to Close for Three Months in 2014

The Callahan Tunnel.

A major connector between Boston’s North End and East Boston will be shut down for three months at the beginning of 2014.

The Callahan Tunnel will close beginning in January 2014 and ending three months later with intermittent overnight closures four four to five months thereafter for a “complete rehabilitation,” according to a Massachusetts Department of Transportation statement Thursday.

“The Callahan has served motorists well since the day it opened in 1961 and was paired with the Sumner tunnel,” MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola said in the statement.  “However, every aspect of the tunnel is in fair to poor condition, and the time has come to put the Callahan in shape to last another 50 years.”

There will be “extensive public outreach” to determine the best available detours and alternate routes during the closure, according to the statement.

The $ 34.9 million tunnel overhaul will include rehabilitation of the 52-year old tunnel’s deck, curb line, gutters and replacement of the tunnel’s wall panels. read more

Massachusetts State Police

Mass Pike traffic may now move in both directions as police have opened the Prudential Tunnel.

The Clarendon Street is still closed and traffic is heavy on Storrow Drive in the area, according to a state police alert after noon.

A morning power outage forced police to close a portion of the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) Sunday as workers repaired a lighting and ventilation issue in the tunnel.
