PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – Crews reached a construction milestone with the first permanent concrete placement on the Portsmouth side of the Midtown Tunnel.

According to a news release from Elizabeth River Tunnels, crews placed more than 541 cubic yards of concrete for the “cut-and-cover” section of the new tunnel. “Cut-and-cover” means a trench is excavated and then covered with an overhead support system, according to ERT.
