On Tuesday, November 6 the Queens Midtown Tunnel reopened to bus traffic.

After Sandy left the Queens-Midtown Tunnel flooded with almost 30 million gallons of water a week ago, it has finally reopened to traffic, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced yesterday.

For now, only buses are allowed through it during the morning and evening rush hours, from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. going into Manhattan and  3 to 7 p.m. going out of it.

On average, 78,000 vehicles go through the Queens-Midtown Tunnel each weekday, according to the MTA.
