NORFOLK -- The plate in the eastbound tube right before emerging from the tunnel.

The one-inch thick plate is in place while crews do night repairs. It covers a hole several inches deep and officials decided to use it rather than close a lane.

VDOT is warning drivers not to go faster than the posted 35 MPH during the work.

A mechanic says the plate could damage tires or put your vehicle out of alignment.

VDOT says it hopes to have the work completed and the plate removed by Friday.
