NEW YORK (AP) - A subway tunnel connecting Brooklyn and lower Manhattan that was badly damaged during Superstorm Sandy is set to be reopened.

The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1m1EXew) reports Friday N and R trains will run through the Montague (MAHN’-tah-gyoo) Tunnel beginning Monday.

Workers had been repairing damage in the tunnel caused by the October 2012 storm. It was scheduled to open next month.

A Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman declined to comment to The Times about the repair work.

But the newspaper says the trip planning function on the MTA’s website shows a four minute trip between the two boroughs beginning late Sunday night.

Without using the tunnel, that trip takes about 22 minutes and requires a transfer.
