Custom House Tunnel Construction, 1967

Monterey mayor Minnie Coyle dedicated the one and only tunnel in Monterey on April 5, 1968. The actual dedication was delayed while over $9,000 worth of damage had to be repaired due to a construction vehicle damaging the ceiling tiles. The $2.5 million urban renewal traffic tunnel, then known as the Custom House Tunnel or Minnie's Ditch, took over two-years to complete. The tunnel connecting downtown Monterey with New Monterey and Cannery Row runs beneath Custom House Plaza
