Starting on Sunday, February 5th, 2023, the Jersey-bound side of the Holland Tunnel will close six nights each week for repairs. This construction will follow similar work and overnight closures on the New York-bound side of the tunnel that started in April 2022 and will end on Saturday, February 4th at 5AM. The Holland Tunnel closures are needed to repair damages sustained during Hurricane Sandy. Read on for what we know about the closures.

According to NJ.com, the repairs are part of a $364 million project to repair and replace damaged systems and infrastructure. During Hurricane Sandy, 30 million gallons of water and up to nine feet of flooding above the north tube roadway caused damage to the tunnel.

Port Authority Officials recommend that drivers planning to cross the river to the Jersey side should prepare to use alternate routes during the closures. Other options for crossing the Hudson include the George Washington Bridge, Lincoln Tunnel, and Staten Island bridges (depending on the NJ destination), or take mass transit such as PATH, NJ Transit, or ferries.
