The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel Features Something for Everyone!

Imagine driving along a bridge over a large bay. All one sees is water to the left and right of the road deck beyond the sides; only the road ahead provides solace that you’re still on solid gr… Wait? Where’s the road?!? It’s gone!!! Aaaahhhh!!

No worries, it’s just the tunnel entrance.

See, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel (CBBT) is a monstrous, 17.6 mile civil engineering marvel that has connected Virginia’s Eastern and Western Shores for over 50 years. The CBBT is a bridge-lover’s delight as it features something for everyone: low-lying trestles (fun during choppy seas!) that serve as connectors for two, separate, mile-long tunnels along with two high-level bridges. A restaurant, fishing pier, and sightseeing stops are but a few of the amenities that exist on the route, all of which have helped millions of travelers take in the natural wonder and beauty of the majestic Chesapeake.
