FEMA is giving the Metropolitan Transportation Authority more than $400 million to repair and maintain the city's tunnels after Hurricane Sandy.

About $329 million will go into repairs, and $74.5 million will be invested into the Hugh L. Carey/Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and the Midtown Tunnel.

The MTA said the repairs are designed and constructed to protect the tunnels against a major flood.

Repairs include cleanup and improvements to lighting and electrical systems.
