Cool tunnel, but I hate waiting if there's a line of cars. I feel like they could add a retro-looking stoplight (lol) and not lose the charm

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 also the tunnel near Katz Deli in New Haven on the merrit


RededHaid t1_j9wb5ov wrote

I know there's one in Madison and one in (or just South of) Suffield.

There is a walking trail that goes over this tunnel. There is also a walking trail that goes under the Merritt Parkway in Wallingford.

Shoot, I ride my bike through the Hop River trail and I go through a tunnel on a bike path.

I believe there is a huge tunnel on RT 15 between Woodbridge and Hamden. We always played the try to hold your breath trough the whole tunnel game as a kid. It’s been a real long time though.

If this counts as a tunnel, then New Haven has at least 3 other tunnels under buildings/ city blocks

How do you quantify “one of the only”? Because I feel like there are a lot of these kinds of tunnels in CT.


midmodmad t1_j9wqjzv wrote

There are plenty of them wherever train tracks are.

They do, it just takes forevvvver if you've got more than one or two cars waiting. A light would be far more efficient (although perhaps more dangerous? Don't know).

To the right you can also see one of the only types of street signs in Connecticut as well

One of the only...?

You clearly haven't driven to CT often. These are very common specially on back roads

Oh the Heroes Tunnel. I once saw a truck stuck right in front of it heading towards NY. I was heading North, noticed there were no cars heading in the other direction, emerged from the tunnel, and was like, "Ohhhh, there is the idiot".

This is so common in CT that I’m confused. But I did giggle. Thanks.

Every time I drive through this I have a small panic attack even going 5 mph up to it

Looks like by post history this person is just karma farming.

I literally drive through a tunnel everyday in the most random part of CT.

There is a tunnel on our highway systems.

This dude doesn’t leave his town or smoke some good weed to think it’s one of the few here.

Reminds me - I need to post that pic I took of one of the only Dunkin Donuts in the state….

This tunnel is a pain in the ass, I will always try to find a way around.


smurphy8536 t1_j9yhlna wrote

Just follow the railroads and you’ll find a lot more.

Do you mean bonafide tunnels or small bridges with one lane under them? Not the same thing. There are only a handful of tunnels in CT, even if you include the tunnel twisters waterslide, which should only count as one tunnel.

In most places they just blasted the rock out of the way instead of digging a tunnel through the Earth.

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.

There is 2 in west haven just like this.

Steady_Habits_CT t1_ja0oz7m wrote

Talk about a misleading title!

I don't know this structure, but I differentiate between a tunnel under a natural object--Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, Ted Williams Tunnel, etc. and a crossing underneath a man-made object. There isn't enough in this photo to know whether what is likely a railroad track was built up or if this is a naturally occurring obstacle. Along the MetroNorth tracks in a fairfield County there are multiple structures similar to this startong just over the NY line, underneath elevated railroad tracks.

Most important is that CT has a pair of serious tunnels on the Wilbur Cross. The tunnel in this photo isn't particularly unique. .

Then there’s the tunnel in Hartford that always seems to have an accident in it early in the morning
