26 loose wall panels removed from Sumner Tunnel

State transportation workers found 26 loose wall panels inside the Sumner Tunnel during an inspection late Sunday night into Monday morning and removed them, after an ­examination last week in the Callahan Tunnel found 121 loose panels.

“Overall, the condition of the wall panels in the Sumner is much better than what we found in the Callahan,’’ said Frank DePaola, highway ­administrator for the state Depart­ment of Transportation, during a press conference at the department’s headquarters in downtown Boston Monday.
