In all the years I have lived in VA, I had never been across the bridge/tunnel, so this was an added benefit. Itís a $12 toll or $19 round trip. Cash only, no EZ-Pass.

Mike Schwartz's directions are good. Stay north on US 13 to about the 72 mile marker and turn left onto CR 645 (Arlington Road). In 8/10 mile, turn left onto Butlers Bluff Road (CR 1134), then another 9/10 mile to #3061. The HP was fairly obvious.

On returning to my car I met the property owner (of #3061). She was unaware that the point in question had any significance but was thrilled to learn it was the HP of the county.
