Downtown Tunnel/Midtown Tunnel/MLK Extension

The Midtown Tunnel portion consists of a new two-lane tolled tunnel under the Elizabeth River parallel to the existing Midtown Tunnel which connects the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth as well as modifications to the existing tunnel to provide increased capacity for east-west travel linking Route 58 and Interstate 264 in Portsmouth to the interchange at Brambleton Avenue and Hampton Boulevard in Norfolk. The MLK Extension portion of the project consists of extending Route 58 south from London Boulevard to I-264.
