Yikes! Is that a GOLF CART or a SNOW PLOW ? My Toyota RAV4 SUV is only 68" high and my bedroom doorway is just less than 80". ! Good luck. Maybe I'll try driving my RAV4 through the tunnel and see if it fits.

The tunnel is VERY "sloped" on the sides. Probably yours would fit through the middle but if someone is coming the other way that might be a problem.

Yikes is right! I can see where this will be heading. Honey just have the Roof lowered a few inches lol. From above posters link someone said tunnels south of 466 are 99” (highest) to center and the bottom of radius (lowest) is 85”
Hopefully that is correct.

As stated you should check with the powers that be.

Edit:
Nothing to do with the tunnel heights but I found this to be an interesting read:
https://www.districtgov.org/PdfUploa...a%205.5.15.pdf
Then there is this from the VCDD, Property Management FAQ's page three.

https://www.districtgov.org/departme...agementFAQ.pdf

As stated the curve of the tunnels is what you need to watch out for.

From post 10. Check with VCCD to see if current.

The height of the tunnels varies. For the tunnels north of 466 the highest point of the tunnel (center) is 82". The shortest point is along the curve which is 66". The tunnels south of 466, highest point - 99" in the center, sides along curve - 85".
