Callahan Tunnel WorkMassDOT’s Callahan Tunnel Project begins with a full tunnel closure for rehabilitation on December 27, 2013. We invite you to visit the new Callahan Tunnel Project web page to learn more.  The web page includes trip planning tools during the duration of the closure and a one-page Printable Fact Sheet also translated into Chinese, Portuguese and Spanish. Detour route maps and descriptions will be posted on the web page later in November.

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.
