NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Elizabeth River Crossings will be temporarily closing the Midtown Tunnel for Hurricane Sandy preparations Saturday morning.
According to ERC, the tunnel will be shut down Saturday, Oct. 27 between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. for tide testing.
Drivers should use the Downtown Tunnel as an alternative route.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
