Chesapeake Bay is the the deepest inland bay the eastern Atlantic’s stretching from south to north in the United States. In order to facilitate traffic between both sides of the Gulf and the domestic and foreign tourists to this travel, the U.S. government invest in the construction of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, opened in 1964. The world’s longest bridge tunnel complex length 37 km, known as “one of the seven wonders of the modern world.” Chesapeake Bay Bridge is a two-way bridge across the ocean, from Norfolk to the Delaware Peninsula, set up a water corridor between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic. There is an artificial island in the middle of the bridge, can not only watch the Atlantic bay, the world’s busiest shipping lanes in the spectacular sight, but also fishing, dining, souvenirs. In addition, the bridge will open once a year for public walk or ride a bike tour.
However, since the bridge has been completed, caused great trouble for drivers. To facilitate the smooth passage of ships, bridge repair very high, 185 feet above the water.
