    Default Whittier Tunnel Closing Nov 17-18.

    Just thought I would share and maybe save someone some agony of spending another night in Whittier. The tunnel will be closing at 7PM on the 17th and 18th. It will reopen the next AM at 7:30...

    Here is a cut and paste of the email I got:

    Yea, I went over there one evening last summer (maybe the summer before) and planned on hitting the 10pm tunnel what it was closed for the night. When I went through earlier in the day, no one said anything about an early closing. Luckily I had a nice place to stay (my boat in the harbor). It was still pretty annoying. Hopefully they are warning people on their way in this time.
