Good news for the morning commute, southbound Interstate 71 at the Lytle Tunnel reopened ahead of schedule Sunday.

The interstate was scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. Monday, but it opened at around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

Crews were expected to perform bridge deck repairs on I-71 at Eggleston Avenue as part of a $30 million tunnel project to upgrade lighting, repair concrete and tiles and modernize mechanical and ventilation systems. 

Cameras and a fire detection system also will be installed to allow more efficient and safer response time to tunnel incidents.
