Photo by VA Dept of Transportation - 1990. The Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel (HRBT) is the 3.5-mile-long Hampton Rds crossing for Interstate 64. The HRBT & I-64 connects the S Hampton Rds cities of Norfolk & VA Beach with the Peninsula cities of Hampton and Newport News. The HRBT tunnel holds a place as an engineering milestone: the world's first underwater tunnel connected to man-made islands.
