[efoods]Drivers using the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel saw a very public effort to reduce terrorist risks to the nation’s surface transportation.
A VIPER operation began early Tuesday and lasted through the afternoon.
VIPER stands for Visible Intermodal Protection and Response and is run by the Transportation Security Administration.
As many as 60 people with the TSA, the tunnel police, Coast Guard, NCIS, FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, Norfolk Police and Virginia Beach Police are part of the security checkpoint that’s occurring on both ends of the span.
