Somerset County closed the Big Savage Tunnel on December 1, 2022 for the winter, and will reopen it again by early April, 2023. Cold temperatures, high winds, and freeze/thaw cycles threaten to crack the tunnel’s lining, so in order to protect the lining and extend its life, crews close it each season. There is no detour. Check www.gaptrail.org in March for a re-opening announcement.
