Know Before You Go
Best way to get there is to take Chapel Rd west off VA Route 123. In Clifton, turn right on Main St/645, and then after crossing the RR tracks bear right onto Newman Rd. Turn right onto Fairfax Station Rd/660, and then a right onto Colchester Rd/612, and the bridge is about 200 yards ahead. The trip requires caution. The roads are winding, hilly and dark with sharp drop-offs on either side. The tunnel itself is single car and it is difficult to see cars coming from the other side. Pause before driving through, maybe even toot the horn. There is no shoulder on the road and parking is not allowed. People in the neighborhood walk along the road so be careful when passing. The road itself is a dead end, after passing through the bridge you will have to go to the end and drive back through again. Residents do not want tourists stopping and taking pictures.
