Broad Street Tunnel Project

About the Broad Street Tunnel Project

The Broad Street Tunnel Project is a City-administered federal and state aid project that includes:

  • the filling of the underground subway tunnel from Brown Street to W. Main Street,
  • the rehabilitation and repair of the tunnel from W. Main Street to Exchange Blvd,
  • the reconstruction of various intersections along Broad Street, and
  • the milling and paving of Broad Street.

Closures and Detours for the Tunnel work

The traveling public should expect some delays in this area of Broad St. during the work.   

  • There are no detours in effect at this time. Please check back in the spring.
  • The north side of Broad St., from W. Main St. to Exchange St., will be closed until mid-summer 2011. Traffic on this section of Broad St. will be reduced to one lane in each direction as work continues on the Broad Street Tunnel Project, which began in February 2010. Turns onto W. Main St., Washington St., Plymouth Ave., Fitzhugh St., and Exchange Blvd. will still be permitted. During this time, there will be no parking allowed on this section of Broad St. and portions of the sidewalk will be closed at various times. Access to all buildings along Broad St. will be maintained.
  • Broad St., between Allen St. and W. Main St., has re-opened to two way traffic for the winter. Northbound traffic will be detoured via Morrie Silver Way to Plymouth Ave. to Brown St. to Broad St. This detour will be in effect until November 2010.
  • Broad Street, from W. Main St to Allen St., will be closed again in the spring for a short period of time. Notice will be given in advance.
  • Canal Street from W. Main St. to Wiley St, has also re-opened to two way traffic.
