TEST WORK COMPLETED; TUNNEL OPEN CONTINUOUSLY

 DETROIT/WINDSOR, Ontario, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The test phase of Detroit-Windsor Tunnel renovation work was completed this morning at 5:30, and no further "wee hours" closings are scheduled until May 17.
 Again open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the tunnel had not been closed for repair since it opened on Nov. 3, 1930.
 "The test work went extremely well, and was completed ahead of schedule," said Donald M. Vuchetich, president of the Detroit & Canada Tunnel Corp. (NASDAQ: DTUN), which operates the auto/truck tunnel between the cities of Detroit and Windsor.
 "Trial runs" of such work as manhole installation, ceiling repair and roadway excavation were carried out.
 Main work will begin May 17 on Renovation '93, the first in a five- year, $21 million program to make the tunnel "state of the art" for the 21st century, said Vuchetich. It will require no further tunnel closings after this year.
 Few people were inconvenienced by the shutdowns in the "wee hours," 12:30 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. on weekdays, when traffic is lightest.
