JimH notes: Down answers in the right side of the grid are NORTHBOUND LANES, meaning they have to be read bottom-to-top. There have been some great April Fool's Day puzzles over the years. Here are some of my other favorites: 1997 (AcLite, Solution), 2000 (AcLite, Solution), 2002 (AcLite, Solution), 2004 (AcLite, Solution), 2006 (AcLite, Solution), 2010 (AcLite, Solution.)
