The post by coastalview is correct, you are NOT ALLOWED in the Baltimore Tunnels with the large propane tanks on our trailers. As you approach the tunnel you will see signs to direct you to an alternate route on the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The other post suggesting to take 301 down is great except for crossing the Chesapeak Bay Bridge at Annapolis. Its a narrow 3 lane bridge going westbound and a more narrow 2 lane bridge going eastbound.
This is the information from the Baltimore Tunnel site:
Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) govern the transport of hazardous materials across our toll facilities. Under these regulations, vehicles carrying bottled propane gas in excess of 10 pounds per container (maximum of 10 containers), bulk gasoline, explosives, significant amounts of radioactive materials, and other hazardous materials are prohibited from using the Fort McHenry Tunnel (I-95) or the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel (I-895). The Francis Scott Key Bridge (I-695, the Baltimore Beltway) is a convenient alternative route for crossing Baltimore's Harbor.

to view the actual COMAR regulations: Title 11, Subtitle 7, Chapter 1 (11.07.01).
