I am also searching for this story.  I originally read the story in a SciFi collection in the late

50's or early 60's.

This story was included in a collection of short stories published as a "zpg" zero population growth  book in the 70's. Theme was environmental awareness   etc. The short story about the tunnel (maybe titles that) was particularly well written. I was trying to locate the story also.

Alex I have read this story too and thought I was losing my mind.  I'm glad someone else remembers it.  I too have been on a futile search.  If you have any further info., please send it.

I've been looking for this story for many years now - I had to read it in my junior year of high school.  Great read, but I can't for the life of me, remember the name or author!

It was a short story in the 60's in one of the pulp magazines. I think it was called "The Tunnel" but am not sure.  Trying to find an onlline reference now.

I'm also trying to find this book. I think it's either called "Logan's Run" or "Brave New World".

This sounds like "The Tunnel Ahead" (1961) by Alice Glaser.

I remember this story, the family would leave the city and go to the beach each weekend, traveling thru the tunnel. The tunnel would shut down a certain number of times a month. The families car was in auto pilot in the city and one of their kids was very tall, which caused ugly looks from others b/c he took up more space. But I don't remember the name..

I spend the majority of my time reading. I enjoy reading science fiction novels as well as short stories and I have read over eight hundred of them. I have also read a few Spanish readings; however, I do not feel comfortable speaking nor replying to any questions in Spanish.
