CINCINNATI — I-71 northbound at the Lytle Tunnel is back open after a semi-truck crash closed the highway since midnight.
One lane of traffic began moving through the tunnel shortly before 8 a.m. on Thursday. All lanes were finally clear by 11 a.m. The complete cleanup took around 12 hours.
Crews were able to get the semi upright around 5 a.m., and clean up debris. Crews were using sand to dry up fuel the truck spilled during the crash. Cargo inside the trailer of the wrecked semi had to be reloaded.
