They actually build the tunnels for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in Maryland, not on site.
They build the whole length of tunnel in a huge shipyard, then float it down river to
Chesapeake Bay. When they're ready, they sink the tunnel, hook it up to the road, then
pump out the water! They're some of the strongest (and safest) tunnels in the world! Jeepers!

Virginia Is For Bridge Lovers
Oct 4 -
If you like bridges, well, you're in for a big ol' treat. Chesapeake Bay Bridge, which
connects the little bitty bit of Virginia with the big fat bit of Virginia, is one big
bridge, let me tell you.
It is so big, in fact, that parts of it are tunnels, so the big ships can get into Chesapeake
Bay without ducking. It's quite remarkable. It's also quite long.
Experience the magic for yourself! We took a photo every kilometer along the bridge so
everyone could enjoy it with us! So, through the power of Virtual Reality, made possible
by the Information Superhighway through your Fifty Six Kilobit Per Second Fax/Modem, here
are 32 photos, in order, of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, in amazing Technicolor(TM)!

Site A34-C. Our site would have been A34-E but there was a huge ass buck sitting next to the picnic table when Kev went down. Instead, we opted for the buck-free campsite.
