Bridge Tunnel

One way to enter Suffolk is via the Monitor–Merrimac Memorial Bridge–Tunnel (MMMBT). This unique bridge-tunnel hybrid is so extensive, so massive, that it’s one of the planet’s few structures that can be seen from space. Another nice feature, is that the MMMBT is toll-free. The name comes from the fact that the duel between the two Civil War ironclads was fought less than a mile from the where the tunnel is today.”  The MMMBT is an amazing accomplishment in engineering, but it’s also a prime location for serious auto accidents. On a daily basis, you hear on the radio or read in the Virginian-Pilot about a major auto accident that occurred in the bridge-tunnel.
