Hugh Carey Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel
When commuters hit the roads Monday morning, both tubes of the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel — formerly known as the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel — will be open to traffic in both directions.
Half of the tunnel is open for business. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is calling it a major accomplishment after nearly 80 million gallons of Sandy’s flood waters rushed down the streets of Manhattan and filled all four lanes of the twin tubes.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that the Gov. Hugh L. Carey Tunnel, formerly called the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel, will reopen for limited rush-hour buses on Monday – two weeks to the day after Superstorm Sandy struck.
