The utility tunnel is an area in Fallout 3 which connects a manhole in Pennsylvania Avenue with the remains of the White House. In the add-on Broken Steel, it also contains an access to the Presidential sub level which leads to the Presidential metro with exits to the Capitol building's east wing and Adams Air Force Base.


When one first enters the utility tunnel, there is a workbench and an ophthalmoscope in a side room to the right. To get to the White House, take the first left, follow the corridor, and one will eventually find a door to the left that opens onto the ruin-filled radioactive pit that the White House has become.

To reach the sub level in Broken Steel, keep following that corridor until one sees a door on the right.

Notable lootEdit


There are two ramps set up on either side of a car and the remains of a daredevil who was trying to keep himself entertained after the bombs fell. The Lone Wanderer can see on one side the crashed motorcycle and the top half of the daredevil hanging from the light fixture above the car. However, it is possible for the skeleton to have fallen down and be lying on the car instead.


The utility appears only in Fallout 3.
