WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (AP) — Monday marks the start of a
yearlong project to overhaul the helix that leads into the Lincoln Tunnel from
New York-bound motorists who use the tunnel during the overnight hours will
face detours and delays.
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
