Callahan Tunnel closure begins at 11 p.m.

Consider this the big lump of coal in our collective civic stocking two days after Christmas: The Callahan Tunnel closes for repairs for the better of part three months starting at 11 p.m. Friday.

The 30,000 vehicles that use the tunnel on an average day will have to head for the Ted Williams Tunnel, Route 16 to Route 1A, the Tobin Bridge, or the South Boston Bypass until the Callahan reopens March 12, Massachusetts Department of Transportation spokesman Mike Verseckes said.
