Do you have an example?

Whether it's a bridge or tunnel is fairly easily defined by determining 
which is taking the load.
If a tunnel's structure was removed, would whitewater's above it 
collapse? If 'yes' then it's a tunnel.

In engineering standards, tunnels are not only dug structures but also completely enclosed linear ways with certain length (e.g. in Germany it’s from 80m onwards according to concrete standards, IIRR), which can also in exceptional cases lead over a bridge.
