From Saturday, July 28 until Monday, July 29 one tube of the Queens-Midtown Tunnel will be closed.

The Queens -bound tube of the Queens-Midtown Tunnel will be closed to traffic from 2 a.m. Saturday, July 27 until 5 a.m. Monday, July 29 for construction work, according to the MTA.

The remaining tube will be open to two-way traffic and can be used by cars and New York City buses, but commercial traffic will need to find an alternate route.

From Manhattan, vehicles can enter the tunnel at 34th Street between Second and Third avenues, and from Queens can use the regular 37th Street exit for uptown traffic and take the Marginal tunnel exit to 38th Street, then to Second Avenue to go downtown. The 34th Street and Second Avenue ramps will be closed to traffic exiting in Manhattan.

Drivers should expect delays during the closure and are advised to find alternate routes.
