HRBT backup

Hampton, Va. – Both lanes of I-64 eastbound at the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel have reopened, according to VDOT.

Traffic is still backed up, though.  As of 9 p.m. there was a 6 mile backup past LaSalle Ave.

The lanes were closed earlier in the evening because of a multi-vehicle accident.  Dispatchers say four cars crashed inside the tunnel and several people were taken to the hospital.  It’s unknown how serious their injuries are.
