Part of Fort McHenry Tunnel closed for race

Maryland transportation officials plan to close a portion of the Fort McHenry tunnel to accommodate people participating in a 5k event.

The northbound right portion of the tunnel will be closed to vehicle traffic at 7 p.m. for the Fort McHenry Tunnel 5k Run/Walk. It is scheduled to reopen by noon Sunday.

Officials say they will send all northbound traffic through one portion of the tunnel. They will also close the northbound I-95 ramp to Keith Avenue during the same timeframe. Motorists will be directed to take northbound I-95 to the Boston Street exit, then to take southbound I-95 to Keith Avenue.
