Is Propane now allowed in AL I-10 Tunnel?

Hello! We just returned from a trip from FL to TX over Christmas and noticed there are no longer signs entering the I-10 Alabama tunnel stating "No Propane, use alternate route". Have they changed that to now allow RV's with propane? We did see a truck camper going through at the same time as us but couldnt tell if he had propane or not. I've often wondered if propane would be ok to go through tunnels if safely secured inside the trailer as oposed to hooked up on the tongue. Anybody know if this is ok in areas that dont allow propane to travel through? I figure folks re-filling their BBQ tanks aren't necessarily going to go the long way home every time. So does a tank in a trunk, pickup bed, inside a trailer or SUV still have to stay away from tunnels or does that rule only apply to tanks hooked up?

Thanks!

I been through the Mobile tunnel many, many times and never given our propane tanks a second thought. I don't remember there ever being a sign there.

I know they don't allow them through the Baltimore tunnel because they had a commercial turck delivering propane blow up in that tunnel.

I have never been this way. Is it a tunnel under the water?

I noticed that sign in the past, but this last year I haven't seen it - I'm guessing they no longer have an issue with propane. That sign was one of the reasons I felt particularly good about buying an all-electric camper; I didn't want to travel through the downtown streets of Mobile any time I went west.

On a side note, a few years ago they had to remove a bunch of large, (over six foot), alligators that lived near the Mobile tunnel - too many people would slam on their brakes when seeing one and it became a traffic hazard.
