Good morning. Entering the Thimble Shoals Tunnel on the CBBT. US Rte 13S in VA.

One of two tunnels on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (CBBT)  in Southeastern Virginia. 

These tunnels are rated at a 13 feet 6 inch height clearance. 

The tolerance is very close and many times a driver will have to dump the

air out of his suspension to get a "go ahead" from authorities.

Another thing to watch out for is to try to avoid getting to close to the wall if you

leave the air in the suspension.  Quite a few truckers have knocked out lights

inside the tunnels.


It's a great little trip out across open water and under the waves over the CBBT.

Enjoy the ride and happy motoring.

btw I had to repost this as I accidentally deleted the picture.
