Amazing engineering.

 

UPD: Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel is a bridge that becomes a tunnel. It is a 4.6 miles (7.4 km) crossing for Interstate 664 in Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA. It connects the independent cities of Newport News and Suffolk and is part of the Hampton Roads Beltway.

This is not the Oresund bridge from Denmark to Sweden. That one looks like this: http://goo.gl/a5OT3

This is only one of three bridge-tunnels in the area. The others are the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel and the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel. The Monitor-Merrimac is the one most recently constructed.

Theres two more tunnels as well at midtown and downtown though the midtown is set to be expanded soon and a second bridge tunnel is supposed to connect to the MMBT. Traffic congestion is very bad in the area for all but the Chesapeake bridge tunnel due to the various naval bases and airfields in the area as well as the many shipyards and freight terminals and poor future planning by VDOT and local officials that led to bottle necking at all of the bridge tunnels. This is an area where people from three states come to work daily and its heavily transient due to a large military presence as well as it being a tourist destination and having many schooling options that attract people from all over the world with many coming from eastern block nations.
