Chesapeake bay Bridge Tunnel

This will be our first time driving our class A through the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Are we allowed to enter this tunnel with propane?

Hi Jwcox,
Yes, one can drive through the CBBT with propane. The propane system must be turned off at the tank.

Thank you Gary. It's just the Baltimore Tunnel you have to worry about?

Correct, the I95 and I895 tunnels in Baltimore do not permit propane.

Hi Jwcox,
This is from the DOT from Balti:
Vehicles carrying bottled propane gas in excess of 10 pounds per container (maximum of 10 containers), bulk gasoline, explosives, significant amounts of radioactive materials, and other hazardous materials are prohibited from using both the Fort McHenry and Baltimore Harbor Tunnels. In addition, vehicles in excess of 13 feet, 6 inches, in height, or 96 inches (8 feet) in width; and all double trailers are prohibited from using the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel. Vehicles carrying Class 1 explosives and radioactive materials require an escort at the Francis Scott Key Bridge. For additional information regarding these restrictions, please call 410-537-1374.

The last time I was there, they had a small area for you to pull over. They then turned off your propane and you went on through.

AND got real lucky you did not get caught!!!

CBBT, you can pull over just after the toll booth and turn your propane off. They are very good about it and will remind you. From the north there is a visitor center you can pull into. Just make sure the wind is not blowing too hard, its either 30 or 35 mph and they will not let you cross. But the drive over it is a must. Enjoy.

Bob

That is a very long wait to sit for the winds to die down. One year would require a lot of waiting. Do they have free Wi-Fi?

One trip over CBBT was enjoyable, sunny and a sight to behold. Fishing boats below the bridge, clear blue sky, life was good.

The next trip over, the DW rode on the coach with her head under a pillow. My knuckels were not white but slightly swollan.
Yes, we had the gas turned off.
