ASPA HR 2011 CBBT Tour

Registration is available. Be aware that registration will be closed one week prior to the event (event date: 11/10/11; registration closure: 11/3/11).

The ASPA HR tour of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (CBBT) will take place on Thursday, November 10 at 2:30 p.m. at the CBBT’s Administration Building located on Virginia’s Eastern Shore at 32386 Lankford Highway, Cape Charles, VA.

The tour will begin with a PowerPoint overview of the CBBT and its capital projects and then depart for #1 Island (the island closest to Virginia Beach) where we will be given a “Behind the Scenes” tour of the ventilation building. Please be aware that this portion of the tour will require traveling up and down 5 flights of stairs. It is a working building and it is recommended that attendees dress casually and in comfortable shoes. The tour portion of the event is expected to end around 5 PM.

Immediately following the tour we have dinner reservations at the Chesapeake Grill on #1 island next to the fishing pier. Weather permitting we should be able to enjoy the full moon rising before going into dinner and then further enjoy the sunset during dinner. Dinner will be a preset choice of menus and cost about $25/person. Further details will be forthcoming on the website and by email for anyone already registered.

In regard to tolls… CBBT Administration asks that we carpool to minimize the number of cars that will need passes. We will meet in the parking lot by the Virginia Beach toll booths at 2:00 PM and workout who will carpool with whom. We pickup the complimentary toll passes on the Virginia side and carpool to the Eastern Shore side arriving in time for the 2:30 presentation.

The tour is limited to 20 people and we must submit a list of who will be attending one week prior to the tour date.
