Meeting to discuss closing of Callahan Tunnel

Continue reading below

The temporary closing of the Callahan Tunnel in late December will be the subject of a community meeting on Wednesday. The state Department of Transportation is organizing the meeting, to be held at 6 p.m. in the Robert A. DeLeo Senior Center. The 52-year-old tunnel will be closed for up to three months, starting Dec. 27, for repair work. The tunnel carries traffic from Boston’s North End to Logan International Airport and Route 1A in East Boston. The $34.9 million project includes work on the tunnel’s deck, curb line, and gutters, and replacement of its wall panels, which were removed last December for safety reasons. Detours will be available during the closing. After the tunnel reopens, another four to five months of work will require overnight closings.
