Yes. It has to be turned off. They will ask at the tool booths.

As you approach the tunnel there will be signs announcing that propane gas must be shut off, "pullover ahead". Pull in and the inspector will write down your tag number and observe you shutting the propane off. The only pain is that there is no pullover to turn the gas back on.

I've had this happen in Norfolk, but never at CBBT. There is actually no place south or north that has an attendee that I have ever seen. In Norfolk that is definitely the case. Have not been since last spring, so things may have changed though.

Yes you can. Just have the LP tank turned off. Since you are traveling north, there is a big parking lot on the north end of the bridge if you need to turn it back on.

well......that's exactly how it went........I was asked at the toll booth if my LP gas was off ??.....I replied YES.....the attendant said......enjoy your trip.


It was our first time over the bridge and thru the tunnels .......and it was a fantastic view of the bay. We are planning to use the same route for our trip back down to Florida in Sept.


Who needs I-95 anymore......

I've been over the CBBT so many times I've lost count. Between parents in Florida since 1978, and Myrtle Beaching for golf since the early 90s, there were years I did it four or five times. First trip was probably soon after it opened in the late 60s when I was a kid and we were still vacationing as a family. Being from S/E PA, and now living in south Jersey, the run down US 13/US 113 through Delaware and the Eastern Shore, across the CBBT and then shooting over to I-95 at Emporia is much preferable to taking I-95 down through Baltimore/Washington/Richmond.

Another interesting run is taking US 301 south from just west of Wilmington DE, and then taking the Chesapeake Bay Bridge over to Annapolis, and then continuing south on 301 through Fort A P Hill and so on. You can connect back to I-95 at about a million places along the way, or just stay on 301 for an interesting alternative. Yeah, there are stop lights and small towns and that sort of stuff, but the roadway is very decent most of the way, even divided for stretches, and it's a very pleasant and far less nerve-wracking alternative to I-95.

Watch for wind restrictions on the CBBT. If the winds get to a certain amount don't know correct mph they will shut it down to all but pass vehicles. Just a heads up when you come back...check your weather.
