On June 9 - 11, crews and agencies will run safety drills to test the fire-and-life-safety and traffic control systems for the new Main Post (June 9 - 10) and Battery Tunnels (June 11). These drills will also provide first responders and tunnel operators with the opportunity to test emergency response procedures and plans. Testing these systems and the emergency response plan is a critical step to opening the tunnels to traffic.
