I hate when those MAJOR BRIDGE TUNNELS JUST JUMP OUT AT YOU!  It’s only been there for 10+ years.  S’all I’m saying.  It’s like NOT NEW or anything!!!

Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel lanes reopen after barges hit bridge

Crews are assessing damage after two barges hit a trestle at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.

Tom Anderson, deputy director of the bridge-tunnel, says the trestle was struck around 6:20 a.m. Monday. He says one barge was carrying rocks and the other was carrying heavy equipment.

Anderson told WVEC he believes the weekend storms caused the barges to lose anchorage and they were swept into the trestle.

All lanes in the bridge-tunnel have reopened, said spokeswoman Debbie Cooley. No information about why the barges hit the bridge-tunnel were immediately available.

The bridge-tunnel connects Virginia’s Eastern Shore with the mainland at Virginia Beach.

No injuries were reported.
