Be Cautious!

As we approach 60 years of age, maintenance projects are increasing on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel to preserve the safe condition of the facility.

Nightly tunnel roadwork will occur Monday thru Friday, 9 pm – 6:45 am and travelers can expect 30 minute delays.

In addition to these nightly delays, please be aware of additional changes in traffic patterns across the CBBT:

  • Thimble Shoal Channel Tunnel:
  • Motorists are to be advised of the 45 mph speed reduction throughout Thimble Shoal Channel Tunnel, as work is performed in the Southbound Open Approach areas of the tunnel.  >>Learn More
  • Northbound Travelers:
  • Motorists are to be advised of single lane closures along portions of the northbound roadway, beginning near Virginia Beach and occurring across the facility to Fisherman Island, as CNS-LUS Cabinetry is relocated and new lighting is installed.  >>Learn More
