The Holland Tunnel is a landmark engineering achievement connecting lower Manhattan to Jersey City, and was the first Hudson River vehicular crossing. Because of its valuable contributions to tunnel design and construction, the Holland Tunnel was designated a National Historic Civil and Mechanical Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil and Mechanical Engineers in 1984, and a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1993.

Learn about the history and key aspects of the tunnel in this virtual briefing and walk-through from Port Authority staff, including the impacts of Superstorm Sandy on the tunnel’s infrastructure, and the iconic holiday decorations and tree!

The live tour will be led by Enrique Ramirez, General Manager of the Holland Tunnel. Please note capacity will be limited to 100 people on Zoom.

Presented as part of the Centennial celebration of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
