PORTSMOUTH, Va. - If you’ve driven through one of our many Hampton Roads Tunnels, you know lane closures and slow downs are a huge headache!

A full tunnel closure is even worse.

Drivers won’t be able to get to Norfolk from Portsmouth using the eastbound Downtown Tunnel after 9 p.m. Sunday night.

The tunnel is scheduled to be closed for maintenance work. Crews will be inside the tunnel inspecting and working on the overhead jet fans, along with other routine maintenance.

This is only the EB tunnel, WB will remain open.

The closure starts at 9 p.m. Sunday, March 13 and should be done by 4 a.m. Monday, March 14.
