The Jamestown Road Tunnel was a tunnel that ran underneath Jamestown Road in front of Taliaferro Hall, which opened in September 1960. It was built as part of the College Development Program as a way to give students a safe crossing of Jamestown Road.

It was also known in the 1960s and 1970s as "Alvin's Alley." The tunnel was filled in and the brick wall surrounding it was dismantled in 2011.
