Map of Lincoln Tunnel

The Details

The Lincoln Tunnel is located on the Weehawken, New Jersey - Midtown Manhattan, New York, USA highway. This tunnel is one of the most important transport interchanges that connects New Jersey and Manhattan.

Today, the Lincoln Tunnel is one of six toll highways in the New York area. The toll is only charged one way in New York.

The construction of the tunnel ensured the unloading of congested sections of the road. Every day, the Lincoln tunnel receives over 112 thousand cars, motorcycles, and many other types of transport.

Historic background

The Lincoln Tunnel project was proposed in the late 1920s under the original name of the Midtown Hudson Tunnel. It was named after the famous American politician Abraham Lincoln.

The construction process was carried out in stages between 1934 and 1957. The construction of the central part was postponed due to the Great Depression at the beginning of 1934. The northern part was planned to be built in 1936. But due to a series of economic crises and a lack of materials during the Second World War, it was built in 1945.

The original project assumed the presence of two parts. But due to a significant increase in car traffic, a third part was added to the plan. The construction of the latter began in 1950 and ended in 1957. During this time, the tunnel was repeatedly repaired, improved, and strengthened. In 1996, the central part was overhauled at a cost of $53 million. In addition, the tunnel was equipped with an automated traffic control system.

Characteristics of the Lincoln Tunnel

The length of the northern part is 2.281 m, the central part is 2.504 m, and the southern part is 2.440 m. Traffic is divided into six lanes. There are speed limits - no more than 56 km/h. The width of the tunnel is 6.6 m, and the clearing of the tunnel is four meters.

There is an exclusive XBL bus lane. It is worth noting that XBL is one of the most productive lanes in the US. During the day it accommodates over 1.8 thousand buses.
