Midtown Tunnel closed twice Wednesday for disabled vehicles

The Midtown Tunnel (US-58) closed for a second time Wednesday afternoon because of a disabled tractor-trailer.

An alert from Elizabeth River Tunnels at 4:15 p.m. said all traffic was stopped, but minutes later crews began alternating traffic through the open lane. Both lanes reopened to traffic shortly before 5 p.m.

A disabled tractor-trailer inside the tunnel also shut down both lanes of the tunnel around 11:45 a.m. The tunnel reopened at 12:40 p.m. during that incident.
