Propane again

I know the topic of propane restrictions has been recently discussed in the media, but of course I did not save it.

I am heading to Virginia Beach, Va. from Pa in the next 2 weeks and was wondering if the bridge just below Hampton, Va. ( just passed Hampton Roads has a propane restriction as some bridges closer to DC, Maryland and Virginia have ? This is Route 64

Appreciate any feedback !

Bridge? No - Why would a bridge have a restriction? Never seen that.
Tunnels? Yes - you have to turn your propane off.
I must of missed that media discussion but there are plenty of threads here on this site about propane.

I lived in the Hampton Roads area for years - met my wife there after I got out of the Navy.

I passed through the bridge-tunnels on 64 all the time with our old travel trailers all the time. No one ever bothered to check our rig to make sure the gas was off. Those bridge-tunnels have no toll, so no reason to stop.

Propane check before entering Tunnels.

I went through the HRBT and CBBT this weekend. I stopped once at an inspection point and the inspector said if you’re in an RV you don’t have to stop if your propane is already off. You only need to stop to turn it off before the tunnels. So if you make sure it’s off before you head out you’re all set.

James River Bridge. No restrictions. US Hwy 17 to Isle of Wight County (Smithfield). Never had an issue when we lived there, and many of our favorite campgrounds were out that way in Suffolk.

The only propane restrictions I am familiar with in this area is the Baltimore Tunnels on I-95. There is no propane allowed in these tunnels. If you try to drive a RV through them they will catch you at the toll booths. The fine is $1000 I believe.

Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I 95)

From their web page.

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. For additional information regarding these restrictions, please call 410-537-1374.

You must stop before the tunnels for a person to come check your propane tank to make sure itís off. The billboard on the freeway will tell you all campers to stop for inspection. If you blow by the inspection the person working the booth will call ahead and when you pop out the other side of the tunnel a police car will pull you over and issue you a $86 ticket. Donít ask me how I know this.
