Traffic will have no access into the Lytle Tunnel from Fort Washington Way.  The Second Street entrance ramp will remain open as will I-71 north of the Lytle Tunnel. Traffic will be detoured north on I-75 to SR 562 to I-71. All lanes of Fort Washington Way are scheduled to reopen to traffic by 6 a.m. Saturday, April 4.
