Are tunnels like these really that rare? There was one by where I used to live in Danbury, there’s one in Newtown…

There's a pretty long one on the Merritt/Wilbur Cross near New Haven.

OP said tunnels, not one lane tunnels.

Lol. Firstly, it's not one lane as there's traffic in both directions separated by concrete. Secondly, a one lane tunnel is still....a tunnel.

Doubt it's a single lane, one car at a time, bidirectional tunnel though.

Wallingford has a single lane bi-directional tunnel on Rte 150. It's controlled by a light on either side.

The one in Vernon isn't, unfortunately. It's supposed to be cars stopping and taking turns to go through. Recently some idiots have tried blowing past the line only to get stopped halfway through and forced to back out.

Those aren’t that rare either. There are a lot of railroad crossings like that

East hampton, Portland and Guilford have them too. These stone tunnels/bridges are on all of the old abandoned and currently in use train lines.
