Connector tunnel to airport reopens

September 2, 2006


— A connector tunnel shut down after a fatal ceiling collapse in July reopened Friday night, restoring an important link from Interstate 90 eastbound to Logan Airport in time for the busy Labor Day weekend.

Nearly 120 shoring towers were installed to support the tunnel's ceiling panels.

Installation of the towers finished Friday afternoon, and federal inspectors approved the work later in the day. State officials initially had said the inspection could take about a week.
