Callahan Tunnel to close Sunday for inspection

The Callahan Tunnel will be shut down Sunday night to allow for the inspection of all 2,800 wall panels, after one of them fell into the roadway Friday night and tied up traffic for several hours, a state transportation official said.

“We’ll physically yank on every panel,” said Frank DePaola, Massachusetts Department of Transportation highway administrator. “We apologize for this inconvenience for people who are traveling to the airport.”
