MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola says construction work is on schedule as part of the $19.3 million rehabilitation of the Callahan Tunnel. DePaola provided the media with an update during a tour of the tunnel structure. The tunnel is scheduled to reopen on March 12, 2014. The work performed by contractor McCourt Construction has included replacement of the concrete deck and installation of pre-fab curbing.
The work schedule following the tunnel reopening includes additional work during the next several months requiring overnight closures between 11p.m. and 5a.m.
Three main detour routes have been established to handle traffic to East Boston through the Ted Williams Tunnel/Massachusetts Turnpike Eastbound, over the Tobin Bridge, or for motorists coming from points north– along Route 16 East to 1A South.
