Virginia I-77 tunnels/propane

I spoke with a rep today at Big Walker tunnnel and East River Mountain tunnel which are on I-77 just North of Wytheville, VA about my two tanks of propane and my A frame. He says that is not a problem, no need to stop to be checked, just continue through the tunnels.

There is no trouble there I went through 2 tunnels a couple weeks ago. Only place in Virginia is on the eastern shore by Norfolk and Newport....

I wish there was a list of ALL TUNNELS that do NOT allow propane. That would be super helpful to us RVer. If you don't know there is a tunnel on your route, how would you know to check it out?
I'm sure the info is somewhere, just don't know where to look.

I am not aware of tunnels that do not allow propane tanks. The tunnels where I live (Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, Monitor Merrimac Bridge Tunnel and Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel) allow propane, but they require you to stop prior to the tunnel to show the safety rep that you have turned off the valves to your propane tanks. Basically, they want to ensure that the propane tanks are not turned on. You can go online to these Bridge-Tunnels and read the various height rules and propane warnings. Hope this helps.

The only two tunnels that I have come across that do not allow propane are in Baltimore, the Fort McHenry (I95) and the Harbor (895) tunnels. You have to go around the beltway.

this is very true you can carry them through but they have to be turned off. It's a big fine if you do not stop and let them check. They will be waiting on the otherside. The good thing is it only takes a minute after you wake him up to check, but they do have a very safe place to pull off on both sides.....
