VDOT Urges Motorists to Use Monitor Merrimac

May 28, 2010

Virginia transportation officials are urging Memorial Day travelers to use the Monitor Merrimac Memorial Bridge Tunnel if they're going to Virginia Beach or the Outer Banks.

The Virginia Department of Transportation said Thursday that motorists should take the lesser used tunnel to ease congestion on the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel.

VDOT spokeswoman Nora Jump-Scot noted that a lighting project that is being done overnight closes a single lane of the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel.
