Follow the Gulls to this 17.6 mile engineering wonder that connects Virginia's Eastern Shore with Virginia's mainland in Virginia Beach/Norfolk and serves as the East Coast's Scenic Shortcut.
For over 58 years, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel has captured worldwide attention as a modern engineering wonder and an important East Coast travel convenience. Crossing over and under open waters where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, the Bridge-Tunnel provides a direct link between Southeastern Virginia and the Delmarva Peninsula (Delaware plus the Eastern Shore counties in Maryland and Virginia), and cuts 95 miles from the journey between Virginia Beach and points north of Wilmington, Delaware.Following its opening on April 15, 1964, the Bridge-Tunnel was selected “One ofthe Seven Engineering Wonders of the Modern World” in a worldwide competition that included more than one hundred major projects.
