Repairs due to improve O’Neill tunnel reception
Recent roadway-resurfacing work has damaged some sections of the AM antennas that run the length of the Thomas P. “Tip’’ O’Neill Jr. Tunnel, diminishing the quality of radio reception. The imbalance that created in the AM signal has also affected the FM. At peak travel hours, when traffic slows to a crawl, that can make for unpleasant commuting. Good news: The Department of Transportation intends to fix the problem in the spring.
