QMT: MANHATTAN EXIT PLAZA CLOSURE OF "DOWNTOWN" LANES FOR THREE MONTHS.
For approximately three months, the two right "Downtown" exit lanes at the Manhattan plaza of the Queens Midtown Tunnel will be closed for the final stage of exit plaza roadway rehabilitation. Customers traveling Downtown can use the four open and newly resurfaced "Uptown" or "Crosstown" exit lanes, or the left "Downtown" exit lane, which will remain open during this period. In addition, East 37th Street between Tunnel Exit and 2nd Avenue has been temporarily converted to receive two-way traffic, to accommodate motorists exiting the tunnel from the Uptown lanes and seeking a Downtown route via 2nd Avenue.
