How do I go about getting information about this?

If you're concerned about tunnels around Norfolk (Hampton Roads) Area, you can avoid all tunnels by re-routing across the James River Bridge....Happy Trails!!

No, you don't. No one native to Virginia goes to the OBX that way. That's the tourist route and always a mess.
North of Richmond, get on I-295, exit on Rt.460 east towards Va. Beach.
Follow the signs to OBX. No tunnels, no tolls, no traffic (comparatively).
PM me if you want details.

Or..... take the I-295 bypass around Richmond (strongly recommended), then back on I-95 South to Emporia and East on VA-58 which will take you to US 17 South to the OBX

This is a great route 301 thru MD is like I-95 but you can count the traffic on one hand. But don't go this way on summer weekend because of the beach traffic.
Yeah would agree to this route as well traveling to and from. Tolls are expensive. But check bay bridge conditions. They won't allow RVs in high winds. 877 bay span is info line to bridge.
