Big Bend Tunnel location in Fallout 76

Big Bend Tunnel is made up of two areas on the map: Big Bend Tunnel West and Big Bend Tunnel East. Both of these are entrances to the actual tunnel which is an instance that you will need to load into and not a place that you can just access. The first entrance you may come across on your journey across the wasteland is the western one. This entrance can be found southeast of Lewisburg where the tunnel drawing is on the map. This entrance resides in the Ash Heap region.
