All lanes through the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel have been reopened since a burning tire on a car headed northbound earlier in the day led transportation officials to close the thoroughfare. The Maryland Transportation Authority quickly had reopened the southbound lanes, but for hours had detoured northbound lanes at Childs Street, the last exit for drivers before they enter the tunnel. Cheryl Sparks, a department spokeswoman, said the tire fire caused a lot of smoke but no injuries.

State transportation officials have a word of advice for commuters and beachgoers who usually include the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel in their travel plans: Don't. Rush-hour and weekend delays of up to an hour are expected beginning June 20 as construction crews replace the concrete decking on the four-lane bridge just south of the Interstate 895 tunnel toll plaza that carries traffic over the CSX train tracks. "There will be eight weeks of continuous lane closures," said Cheryl Sparks of the Maryland Transportation Authority.

The potent one-two punch is how the Maryland Transportation Authority keeps tiled walls in the Fort McHenry and Baltimore Harbor tunnels glistening from the beginning of April through Thanksgiving. For the overnight scrubbing operation, workers mix the anti-soot soap with hundreds of gallons of water and place the solution on the backs of two bug-eyed, German-engineered trucks called Unimogs.
