PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – The Elizabeth River Tunnels Project created a time-lapse video of element one being outfitted, prepared and moved into position for immersion into the river. The video was recorded between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on October 9.

It is no easy task maneuvering a 16,000-ton concrete-reinforced tunnel element into position.

This is the first of eleven tunnel elements that will make up the new Midtown Tunnel.
