Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Monday that the MTA is expected to award a four-year, $236.5 million contract to rebuild the Queens Midtown Tunnel, which since the 2012 hurricane has been operating with temporary repairs. Around 40 percent of the length of tunnel was submerged in 12 million gallons of salt water during the storm.
The contract, which will be completed with Judlau Contracting Inc., was approved by the MTA Bridges and Tunnels Committee on Monday and is expected to be approved by the full MTA board on Wednesday.

In 1940 it cost $58,000,000 to build it from scratch.
If we had only listened to Robert Moses on this one, we'd have a bridge and not a tunnel for this river crossing.
$58m in 1940 = $1b today.
Great job illustrating nothing.
"Great job illustrating nothing"
It illustrates how little the dollar is worth today, comparing a whole tunnel being built to having a paint job, new lights and pavement being installed.
You need to relax or cut down on the caffeine...
How much money passed hands under the table? The MTA is so greedy and corrupt!
There are 1st world cities that can build a mile of subway or road tunnel for $236 million dollars.
