GLENCOE, Ky. (FOX19) - Expect delays on southbound Interstate 71 in northern Kentucky Tuesday.

The highway is down to one lane until about 1:30 p.m. so crews can remove a tanker truck involved in a crash overnight, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

The highway was completely blocked at one point near Glencoe, but now one lane open, says Nancy Wood, KTC spokeswoman.

Detour onto SB I-75.

Drivers are encouraged to use various travel resources that provide real-time travel information, such as TRIMARC, WAZE, and GoKY, Wood says.
