The written rules/laws state no hazmat and that includes propane in containers of more than 10 lbs. Not every cop and judge will agree with someone over the phone giving you permission to "just turn it off and it will be fine" cause that is not what is written out. They can and will give out tickets. Just go around you are not adding that much more time nor miles to a trip.

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel is completely different from the Baltimore
Harbor Tunnel and the Fort McHenry Tunnel. They are a hundred miles
away from each other. You can go thru the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel if
your propane is turned off at the tank. You can not go thru the Baltimore Harbor
Tunnel or the Fort McHenry Tunnel with any propane tanks.

The difference is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel is in Virginia and the Ft. McHenry and Harbor tunnels are in Maryland. Totally different set of regulations.

Oooo... Yep I did over look that one part. Im going to call then in the morning and ask if a motorhome can use the tunnel even with propane on board. I know I'm traveling from lancaster to they outer banks nc at the end of may. I would hate to gery there and them say "you can't be here". My curiosity also had the best of me also. I would like to ask them (if they say no) why not.

I drove truck for quite a few miles in this country and hauled a placard tanker's, NO TUNNELS! Period! Even if your propane bottle is shut off if a accident was to occur and you are involved a 40# propane bottle exploding would collapse the tunnel, Remember in Buffalo about 15-20 years ago that forklift that hit a 100# propane cly. in a warehouse, the explosion completely leveled the entire city block! P.S. I use to haul propane also 9,000 gallons at a time, and ran the propane loading facility at the Refinery where I work now. People take it lightly most of the time, ever have your grill flash up when lighting it and take your eyebrow's off?

Here is for the Chesapeake bay tunnel http://www.cbbt.com/hazmat.html

Here is for the Chesapeake bay tunnel Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel -- Hazardous materials

I called the fort mchenry tunnel they said if your carrying propane you can't use the tunnel. Here is the number for then 410-537-1374. Even though I'm carrying 80 gallons I'm still under the allowed amount but its in one container which makes it illegal to use the tunnel.

Before I got my RV I used to use I695 westbound going around Baltimore to get out of paying the tolls. It's not a bad trip. Now that I have an RV I will continue this policy.

You can not bring Propane through the I 95 or I 895 tunnels. I don't understand the debate. It is what it is - the law. It is not a personal vendeta that the state of Maryland has against RVers it is what they have decided can go through the tunnels. Just go around I 695, it is only a few extra miles.

The ticket for transporting Hazmat through the tunnels is a "Must Appear".
