Is it a Bridge or a Tunnel?

I live in that area. We have a bunch of bridge/tunnel things like that. You can't leave the area without crossing one.

That does look pretty cool, it might be scary-looking but I'd love to ride in one of those. ;-D

That is awesome. But it also makes you wonder why the hell they built it like that. Did they build a bridge over 80 percent of the bay and then realize the work order called for a tunnel, and tried to make up for it hoping that no one would notice? Or was it a drunk engineer who one night, nearing the end of this major bridge project, saying, "Dude...it would be sooo cool if we built a bridge underground." :-?

I am pretty sure you have a better chance of dying in a plane than in that bridge :-]

Actually, it's one of four bridge-tunnels here. Ya gotta love living on the Chesapeake Bay. They look really cool in the evening with the lights turned on when flying over them in an airplane.
