How will this affect you?

The Sumner Tunnel, between East Boston and the North End, will be undergoing a full restoration beginning in 2022.  Due to the necessary restoration work that will be required, the tunnel will be closed to vehicular traffic and will create impacts to the community and commuters during construction.
