The painting project that has brought an around-the-clock closure to the outbound Liberty Tunnel will spread to the inbound side starting tonight.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced that the inbound tunnel will close at 8 p.m. today through Friday, Aug. 8, reopening by 6 a.m. each day. Traffic will be detoured via Route 51 to the Parkway West interchange.
The outbound tunnel remains closed, with reopening scheduled for 6 a.m. next Monday. A 16-day around-the-clock closure of the inbound tunnel will occur next month, on dates yet to be determined, PennDOT said.
