HRBT OPEN AT I-64 EASTBOUND
Two panels at entrance have been repaired

SUFFOLK – Interstate 64 eastbound at the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel (HRBT) is now open.

After inspectors discovered two metal panels out of position at the tunnel entry, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) immediately closed I-64 eastbound at the HRBT to reattach the panels to the concrete ceiling.  

Inspection in and around the area showed there was no significant structural damage to the HRBT.
