Callahan Tunnel EntranceMassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting for the upcoming Boston Callahan Tunnel Rehabilitation Project as follows:

Wednesday, October 30, 6:00 – 7:00 PM, DeLeo Senior Center, 35 Harvard Street, Winthrop

MassDOT project staff will present details and preliminary schedule information.

The Callahan Tunnel Rehabilitation Project requires a full tunnel closure that is expected to last up to two-and-a-half months, starting on Dec. 27, 2013 through March 12, 2014.

The $34.9 million project includes rehabilitation of the 52-year old tunnel’s deck, curb line, gutters and replacement of the tunnel’s wall panels.  The original deteriorated wall panels were removed in December 2012 as a safety measure due to significant corrosion to the panel wall anchor system.

The proposed work schedule includes the full tunnel closure in early 2014 with detours in place, followed by an additional 4-5 months of work requiring overnight closures between 11p.m. and 5a.m. The complete closure of the tunnel will reduce the overall duration of the project, provide enhanced public safety by minimizing changes to traffic flow, and better coordinate with other local projects including Tobin Bridge work, which is scheduled to resume in spring 2014.

For more information, please contact John Romano, 857-368-8905 or john.romano@state.ma.us.
