Ok, I'll bite, Subby.

What's the 'dog' thing a reference to?

I'm taking time travel. Mr. Peabody or Brian Griffin, perhaps.

I didn't get the dog reference either. I was expecting something more related to walking out of the tunnel, or setting trucks on fire.

So, anyone familiar enough to say how bad any alternative routes are?

I don't think that is a bowler. Looks more like a cartoon fedora.

There are crossover lanes right at the entrance on each side so they can shut one down completely for maintenance. They just have to cone the center stripe in the other direction and divert traffic through that lane.

Simple in theory but takes a bit to do in practice.

Seems like this would be the more obvious reference..

Pretty sure a shipment that large would have police escorts.

It definitely didn't help that I misread the headline as blue eyed dog.

This headline is bad and sunny should feel bad. Someone on the internet is slightly disappointed with them.

Are they sure it isn't just a part of the underground coal fire that made it to that part of the state?

Rte. 30 parallels the Turnpike there.  It'll be slower, but it'll be open.

I'm currently getting my driver's license in Germany (on hold because of corona), and we had an app to practice the 1162 questions that could possibly be on the theory test. There were several questions on what to do if our car spontaneously burst into flames in a tunnel, leading me to think it must be a common occurrence. This cinches it!
